We have some of the UK's busiest railways (and worst operators) on the Thameslink route. We have some of the most interesting churches, such as St Pauls on the Ridgeway in Mill Hill. We have beautiful parks and open spaces. We also have allowed some of our high St's to rot and become strewn with litter.
Yesterday, I was disgusted with the state of Mill Hill park. It was strewn with litter. Whilst it is the responsibility of the council to clear such mess up, a task they seem to be failing miserably to do, it is a responsibility of all of us to clear up our own mess. Does any of us really want our neighbourhood to resemble a pigsty?
It breaks my heart to see litter strewn next to empty bins. Anyway I have a heartfelt plea to everyone. Please can you pick up your mess and put it in the bin. And maybe you can also do what I did and spend two minutes putting other people's mess in the bin as well. I remember back in the 1960's when St Josephs college in Mill Hill used to hold annual garden fetes. At the end, there was a prize for the child who collected most rubbish. Maybe the council could organise a similar scheme in our parks and open spaces. We have a great community, let's treat it with the respect it deserves.
