Alternative Economy

Lots of hard work has been done the last couple of days in and around the patch of wooded hillside on the east of the Sturminster Valley. Loads of scrap that had been dumped was retrieved, to be sold on to the scrap merchants for recycling. The woods look a lot better for it.

It wasn't the council. It wasn't us do-gooders in the Friends of Stockwood Open Spaces. It wasn't Community Payback. It was an entrepreneurial initiative to make a few bob. Better all round than watching daytime TV.

Arguably, this little bit of work benefitted society far more than a whole wunch of bankers.

Except that it almost certainly broke a few laws. Unlike most of the bankers.
