Now that longer daylight hours are here members of the litter picking group have been out in action and to date this month have collected 19 bags of litter. One member has unfortunately noted a number of discarded ‘sharps’ dumped where they could easily get the attention of local children. Should anyone or even any of the local wildlife prick themselves on the syringes which have obviously been used by drug addicts the consequences could be very serious indeed. Anyone finding such ‘sharps’ should not touch them at all but report details to the local council either online or by telephone (the App what3words is useful) and an officer with specialist equipment will be sent to collect the items.
On a brighter note, 13 members recently got together for an informal meeting to discuss the way forward with the group and agreed that unfortunately there will always be plenty of litter to keep us busy.
