Who Cares?

Each month I deliver the Tysoe & District Record to some thirty Oxhill subscribers and on my round meet the nicest people!  I'm accompanied by my dog and, with plenty of bags on my person, am happy (?!) to pick up other people's litter to help keep our village looking nice.  It is quite normal for me to fill a carrier bag in quite a short space of time with an assortment of cigarette packets, crisp bags, sweet papers and 'fast food' packaging jettisoned, one would presume, by non-residents passing through.  It is worrying the number of beer, wine and spirit bottles/cans that I collect from the grass verges, but what really gets me upset is regularly finding (and retrieving) bright blue 'doggy' bags containing excrement chucked in the hedgerow at the top of the village by someone more local.
