dumped mercurys - ardfillan road se6

Oh dear. Following on from my previous post about litter, here is some more! It's gone now, but what a mess. Good job the weather was good so they didn't have chance to spread far and wide.

litter - dowanhill road se6

Apparently Lewisham was in the final of Britain's cleanest town, as I discovered reading the Lewisham News blog. Well this picture perhaps gives some clue as to why it failed to win (apart from the fact that Lewisham is a London borough, not a town). This sort of litter is quite typical round and about the Corbett estate, sadly. It tends to fly out of people's skips when they are doing work on their houses, or out of people's wheely bins (there are a lot round here with no lids). I'd say it's more of a problem here than graffiti, which was definitely not the case in Lee, where we used to live, where graffiti was definitely a bigger issue. The other thing we get a lot of is poo. Be it fox, or dog it is extremely unpleasant. So come on Lewisham council, Catford is part of Lewisham too and it deserves some of your attention when it comes to street cleaning!
