SUMMER is a wonderful time of year and our countryside does not need rubbish thrown all over the place.

It’s a place of beauty; if you walk or cycle, you will know what a lovely place it can be.

Roadside rubbish and fly-tipping causes rats and diseases to animals and also to humans.

Our rivers should be able to flow naturally and there should be no rubbish such as cans or plastic rings from beer cans.

It is human beings who are the destroyers of the countryside. Please stop and think, and let’s save it.
