Cleaning Up Salisbury 2016

by Michael Ford last modified 11 Mar, 2016 11:25 AM

Councillors and schoolchildren joined forces for litter-picking in Salisbury on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 March, as part of the national ‘Clean for the Queen’ campaign.

A number of Year 6 schoolchildren from St Mark’s CE Primary School joined County Councillor Mary Douglas and City Councillors Derek Brown, Charles Rogers and Atiqul Hoque, along with several teachers.

Areas targeted for cleaning included Victoria Park and Hudson’s Field, near Old Sarum.

Speaking of the pupils helping, Cllr Brown said, “They can’t understand why people who’ve got or had some rubbish – had some cigarettes or had a chocolate bar or something – why don’t they take the rubbish home? Put it in the bin instead of just dropping it on the floor?”

Pupil Kitty Fox said, “I find it really annoying that people have a nice lunch and they just chuck it in a bush, because loads of animals could get hurt and trapped in there.

“People are walking around and you see this, and it’s just really disturbing. I think part of the problem is we don’t have enough bins.”

Pupil Joe Simmonds said, “I found a parking ticket just by a car. Why couldn’t they just take it in the car?

“Honestly, people’s care and respect for things these days – I don’t get why they don’t just put it in the bin!”
