Join the call for a clean up

editorial image

My road is lined with an almost constant ribbon of rubbish.

Plastic bags, bottles, food containers, drink cans, furniture, mattresses, piles of builders’ waste, treated wood, tyres, asbestos, toilet paper.

Basically almost anything you can imagine.

It looks disgusting, it threatens our wonderful ecology and, worst of all, if it is not picked up natural processes will bury it underground where it will remain hidden for thousands of years.

I’ve created a petition for the creation of a National Litter Clean-Up Scheme.

A simple and cheap solution.

Please take a few minutes to sign the petition, and please spread the word by any possible means – the only way it will work.

You’ll find the petition at

There’s no need to register.

If we truly value the beauty of where we live then we must be proactive.

Get out there and clean up this mess and, in doing so, not only set an example to each other, but encourage the consideration that our planet so desperately needs.
