I’m pleased to see that, in all probability, people power has worked over the issue of the filthy state of the walkways around the boating lake at Chasewater, which this week have been cleaned to a decent standard – you’ll remember that last week, I posted about the disgraceful mess there.
After passing through yesterday afternoon (Thursday 17th July 2014) I’d like to thank the rangers for washing down the area and my gratitude is also extended to whoever initiated this long overdue action.
I’m sure if the issue is now kept in check with regular attention it shouldn’t be a problem.
It just goes to show that if we complain, and highlight an issue, despite the naysayers, we can get action. One very illuminating response to my initial post was made this week which I think we can all empathise with.
Things like this matter; they give an impression of places that stays with visitors.
Finally, we can all do our bit by bagging and disposing of dog poo properly and responsibly, not overfeeding the birds, and generally just by being reasonable and not littering.
Thanks to all – and by the way Edwina, I reported two off-road bikers on the canal yesterday afternoon too. More to come on that later.
