Cleaning The River
--by tarkamoore, posted Mar 1, 2014
Visitors come from all over England to enjoy our village and the neighboring countryside. But, lately, people have been tossing their rubbish into the river, leaving it looking sad and neglected.
So, I found my longest pair of gum-boots, a pair of elbow-length rubber gloves, a hefty rubbish sack, and waded down into the river. I cleaned out all the plastic bottles, potato-crisp packets, broken beer bottles, takeaway cartons, and all the plastic I could find.
My refuse sack was filled, the river was cleared, and I got to enjoyed my home town from a whole new perspective!
