What a load of rubbish…

We are indebted to Dave Porter for this report:

What a load of rubbish….

Yes, that’s right, rubbish, rubbish everywhere. Bottles, cans, sweetie papers, credit cards (credit cards? Yes even valid credit cards are discarded) cigarette butts, newspaper, glasses,  fag cartons, crisps packets, rope, the list is endless. Even car hubcaps are chucked over fences to lie in the undergrowth for years. Some of the above mentioned items were bagged up by litter picking volunteers who gave up their Saturday morning to make Ickenham High Road a tidier place.

So well done to (l to r) John, Erica, Jackie, Graham, Emma, Corinna, Simon, Nathan (champion litter picker on the day).  And not in picture Jake.

Such effort moves Ickenham towards being Britain’s first litter free neighbourhood. Now all we need is for all citizens to dispose of their rubbish responsibly either by taking it home with them or putting it in a bin.
