Litter at Smannell Road Open Space

The clean and tidy environment at Augusta Park (story below) is a complete contrast to the mess I saw when walking back to town past Smannell Road open space.

Litter at Smannell Road

This weekend the open space hosted one of the regular visits by funfairs which obviously will generate some litter. I was appalled however at the amount of litter around the site and in particular by the number of empty broken beer and wine bottles strewn around the play areas. The area has now been tidied thanks to prompt work by both the fair operators and, following my email to them, Test Valley Environmental Services.

I wonder how much this cleaning costs local taxpayers and will be speaking to both environmental services and the police and wardens about how illegal drinking in and the subsequent littering of this area can be controlled.
