When I was in school punishment was litter duty. Well today, I’ve been out with other Lib Dem Councillors and volunteers to do a ‘litter pick’ in Sweyne Park.
Despite the elements, we had a small number of volunteers turn up and between us, we manage to collect over 20 bags of rubbish – not bad for a couple of hours work! It was somewhat satisfying to see the difference to the bridle track once we had finished.
As always, we are extremely grateful to the team of volunteers.
Our team has been out busy delivering our Focus leaflets in the Sweyne Park & Grange Ward and Down Hall & Rawerth. However, since we are a progressive party….. you can read our e-Focus (our online edition) which is available here for Sweyne Park & Grange.
It’s may sometimes go unnoticed, but we have a keen army of gardeners at Rayleigh Town Council, who work really hard all year around tending flowerbeds and shrubbery. Our own Cllr Chris Stanley has been out this sunny morning, with his good lady, planting over 100 daff bulbs. Back breaking stuff!
If you fancy helping out I’m sure Chris would love to see you – he can be contacted at [email protected]
I’m a regular user of a lot of the parks and open spaces in the Rochford District, as I’m sure many of the residents are. However there seems to be a blight that is taking over the pleasure of using these areas – Dog Fouling. There clearly is a growing trend amongst some inconsiderate/irresponsible dog owners who feel it is not necessary to clear up behind their pets so this week I’ve written to RDC officers and the portfolio holder for parks and open spaces, Cllr Dave Sperring, about the issue of dog fouling.
I’m told by Cllr Sperring that this issue is being looked at and that ideas to try and combat this problem will be presented to full council in due course. I’m looking forward to hearing these ideas when presented to council, in the meantime, watch where you step!
