Lucy and I spent a couple of hours clearing out rubbish in the stream which runs along the boundary with the back of Tesco. The litter problem is unfortunately still with us, about 80% of what we picked is new unused plastic bags used for their home deliveries. We also found ice that had been dumped from the freezer boxes, it is illegal to dump anything into water courses. We also know that when the road is swept instead of putting the rubbish into bags it is often tipped over the low wall into the stream. We have started a project to tackle the issue, see the TWEEP tab for more information.
