New litter bin making a difference

Have you noticed the new litter bin on the London Road, opposite the junction with Whitelands Way? It has only been in place a few weeks but is already a well-used amenity. A local resident asked Clanfield Online for help to request a bin for this spot, and with the assistance of Clanfield Parish Council and Cllr Arthur Agate, East Hants District Council agreed it would be a useful place to install a litter bin. Thank you all for your help!

This was the second bin installed on the London Road - in 2018 we helped to coordinate a replacement at Snells Corner, again with advice from Clanfield Parish Council - CPC are not responsible for litter bins but they did advise us who to approach.

Installation of street litter bins might not be major ‘breaking news,’ but if it keeps just one more corner of our village tidy, then it is newsworthy. I have never met anyone who admits to dropping litter or not picking up after their dog, but we all see the evidence of this behaviour on our streets, footpaths and hedgerows – it makes you ask, “Who are these people?”. Of course, there is an alternative – take your litter home with you. Either way let us all strive to keep our village tidy and a pleasant place to live.
