Last week we reported on 'The Only Cure for Litter is Us' — Tattenhall is Blighted by Litter — CLICK HERE

Another week ... another bag of litter on a short walk throughout the village.

Worryingly this week:

  • The 'Pod' opposite the Primary School and the adjacent pavement were scattered with shards of broken glass
  • The pavement from the Village Surgery to the Pod was littered with 10 NITROUS OXIDE (presumably used) canisters — nitrous oxide is becoming an increasingly popular way for people to get high in the UK, with tell-tale canisters littering street corners all over the country — not least here in Tattenhall! This product is also known as laughing gas or 'hippy crack'.
  • Empty beer cans, empty water bottles, sweet wrappers, empty crisp packets and a number of business cards were also collected throughout the walk

Quite what does it take to shame individuals into action.

In response to last week's article, these comments appeared on Facebook ...

-As children we were taught by our parents to take your rubbish home. The lack of care and respect these days is disgusting

-'Beggars belief' — is an appropriate phrase. How hard is it to clear up after yourself? Or to teach a child to do it?
