Councillors campaign to keep Highcliffe free of litter

Bournemouth Echo: County councillor Colin Jamieson County councillor Colin Jamieson

HIGHCLIFFE councillors are leading a campaign to keep the area clean and tidy.

The move includes collecting litter and sprucing up road signs.

County councillor Colin Jamieson said: “When local authorities are concentrating their limited resources on their mandatory activities, a little help from the community goes a long way.

“We decided that volunteering to do this makes a significant difference to the look and appearance of the area, and allows the limited resources of the councils to be spent on things such as pothole repairs.”

Cllr Trish Jamieson added: “Working with the community is important to us.

“By doing this we hope it will encourage others to make sure Highcliffe stays clean and tidy.”

No chance that's what we pay council tax for, or if by doing so will there I'll be a rebate, thought not.
Still at least the Jamieson family will be doing something for their allowances, interested if the leader will be doing the same. I will not hold my breath on that one though.

So that's it, we just walk on by? Does it hurt so much to help the community by picking up the odd piece of clean litter?
