A rubbish day

Unfortunately some of the time that we could be spending carrying out conservation work or improving access is wasted, picking up other peoples rubbish. For some reason a minority of drivers believe that the woodland that runs adjacent to the road is a good place to empty out their car of crisp packets, tin cans and baths! 2 members of staff and 5 volunteers spent 3 hours filling the boot of the Land Rover and the back of a pick up truck with litter and fly tipped waste along part of the B4371. A further hour was spent sorting out the recyclables. In this time we could have cleared 30 metres of overgrown footpath.

Just 2 days later and already fresh litter is appearing! Grrr...
