Bins! Like it or lump it

On one hand our beloved Labour Council brings in a green bin charge to save money, while on the other squanders it on the likes of a double-fronted notice board at Mowbray park, where a better use of money would have been to install a gate at its main entrance near to the kiddies playground, as it’s only a matter of time when a child or dog runs out onto the main road with dire consequences.

Anyway back to the notice board. I’ve been led to believe our councillors are going to have a meeting as to what notices to put in this notice board. (I’ve already suggested a ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ notice, and they could have put in a notice when the circus came to town, but they didn’t. And as for the green bin charge we’ll just have to like it and lump it.
