The heath looks like Glastonbury

The heath is totally covered in litter tonight near the pond. I hope the Princess of Wales pub helps fund the cleaning up – they must surely make a tidy sum over a sunny weekend.

    Agreed, I was sat outside the Princess yesterday and there were cigarette butts everywhere, it’s not that hard to put them in the bin as you go. Oh well…

    Yup, it’s the same every time there’s a sunny weekend…

    It does depress me. Every morning after a warm day (especially on a Monday) I go past the PoW and the place looks disgusting. The council should press the pub to pay up – it is mainly their mess. Although the council could add a few more bins – the ones that are there are too small and always stuffed full.

    More to the point – who are these animals who do not have the decency to take their rubbish home? Never in a million years would I drop litter. I cannot understand those who do – so so selfish to destroy such an area.

    Loving this blog. :)

    I saw the council doing a great job clearing it up on sunday morning. But that means our council tax is paying for the clear up, while the Princess of Wales makes a nice profit. Doesnt seem fair??

    Just found this post whilst double-checking if the PoW is in Lewisham or Greenwich (it’s Lewisham) so I can complain to the council about the litter. It really is grim.

    You could post a note on http://www.fixmystreet.com – it gets sent to the council too… I’ve put a notice on there: http://www.fixmystreet.com/?id=22499

    Hopefully that’ll help. It’s very sad though – the heath would be so lovely on days like yesterday otherwise.

    It’s really annoying the way the rubbish is all just left where people were sitting; there’s never any effort to move it at all. I know it’s all gone the next morning, but that’s not the point.

    I don’t know if it will help. Part of me feels that if the only thing wrong in Blackheath is a bit of litter, we’re very lucky to live here!

    I’d hazard a guess the PoW is paying a lot more in business rates that we are in council tax, so it’s presumably just as entitled to get the Council to take its rubbish away as we are…
