Back in July B&NES made a big ‘drum-banging’ announcement that the first person had been issued with a £150 fine for littering in the Bath area.
It was a dropped cigarette stub that brought about the offence. A costly, careless action that – to a smoker out in the street – is probably done without thinking.
Now, whatever you feel about the Authority’s new get tough policy on litter, perhaps you will be amused by the litter leading up to the steps of the Guildhall itself. The traditional hub of the authority and Bath’s unofficial town hall.
Councillors passing in and out may well like to pause and look at the mess on their doorstep. Not that l am suggesting any council official or councillor may be responsible. Perish the thought.
While we’re on the threshhold – so to speak – time for a little patch up work on this main walkway into the Guildhall. The mortar between the steps and risers has almost gone!
While we’re on the subject – fly tipping can cost you a £400 fine. Wish someone had spotted the idiots dumping this furniture at the approach to the Grosvenor Bridge. Who do they think is going to clear their unwanted goods away?
