A plea from Aveley councillor Wendy Herd
“Every Monday I visit all the parks in my ward, its something the ward councillors have worked hard to improve and sought funding from various bodies with contributions from forums.
“However I’m very upset with the amount of litter being left everywhere. In Aveley recreation park alone the council have supplied and empty weekly three litter bins & two dog waste bins. Yet the grass is littered with sweet wrappers, bottles and crisp packets.
“It doesn’t take two minutes to put something in the bin.
“I would like to ask everyone to use the bins and keep the area tidy.”
