Show us the lead on litter

EDITOR – How appropriate that the new town manager’s first task should be to pick up litter in the town.

I have yet to find anyone who can tell me why we need a town manager, especially during these times of recession and cutbacks.

I for one will not be volunteering my services to pick up litter; surely this is what we pay council taxes for!

Perhaps some of the ELDC councillors, on their inflated salaries, would like to be first in the queue.

Also, if some of the local police officers were to vacate their patrol cars and get out on the beat they could stamp out the problem of the underage drinkers down spring side and elimiate the litter problem there.

All sounds too easy for the man in the street!
