I have also been shocked at the amount of rubbish left on Windmill Hill.

My grumble is that children from the local schools go there for their lunch break, some boys play football but all gather there leaving polystyrene, bags, bottles and cans strewn around.

In the past I have been in touch with the schools and brought it to their attention but they were not at all interested.

There is a chap who goes there in the afternoons and picks up most of it - whether he is employed by the council or does it voluntarily I do not know. Unless children go home for their lunch I feel they should stay within the boundaries of the school and perhaps this would not happen quite so much.

During the school holidays and warm sunny evenings this is also the congregating point for the schoolchildren so it is left messy then.
