Clean and Green
In a couple of hours on Sunday, some 10 volunteers cleared this rubbish from a stretch of greenery on Sturminster Road, the brook, the steps, and the railway path. It included an ironing board, a garden swing, a couple of bikes, a buggy, loads of d-i-y stuff, and - of course - any amount of throwaway containers. First thing on Monday, SITA took it all away (probably to a Buckinghamshire landfill!). And everything looks good again.
All that was left was a couple of notices just to let the passers by know about it. They in turn disappeared within 36 hours, this one finding its way by some unseen hand into the brook.
