In the summer months we ran a story on flytipping, illustrating how unpleasant, antisocial and socially unacceptable it was that individuals should simply 'dump' their rubbish in and around Tattenhall. TWiG (Tattenhall Wildlife Group) were busy last week burning off an entire amount of garden rubbish that had simply been flytipped on Chester Road.

Interestingly too, now that the local farmers have been cutting back the roadside hedges and verges it is obvious just how much litter is simply thrown from moving vehicles into the local verges. There are entire stretches within the village which are enough to enrage anyone, littered with empty bottles and cans, crisp packets, sweet wrappers and fast food packaging.

An initiative to create a Britain that is 'Clean for the Queen' (in advance of Her Majesty's 90th Birthday) is also currently being planned. This initiative asks individuals to nominate 'grotspots', blighted by litter and which need clearing.

Let us hope that our beautiful village is not tarnished with such a negative title!

Whether it is flytipping or dropping litter along the verges, it spoils the gateways into and out of our village and negatively impacts on 'a green and pleasant land'.
