I went for a walk this afternoon and took a large number of pictures. Unfortunately, the settings were wrong so I went back later on as it was getting dark so hoping that these pictures are sufficient. It is true that I do not walk this area as much as I do Feltham Park, partly because Feltham Park is where I take my children.
There is quite a lot to report and I am really glad that I took a look and kicking myself for not having done so for a while.
Unfortunately not great quality but sufficient for capturing the problem. There is a major one by the river from the Frank Towell Court Garages all the way to New Road:
The above is clearly a big problem & will be a big job, but it is one that it needed.
My personal view is that it is not as bad as I feared, though there is room for improvement (3rd, 4th and 5th pics were the worst I saw):
Along the river not as bad I as feared. Here is the worst bit:
Where there are greater problems are (i) the alley begining at Helen Avenue, which I have already reported and placed pictures on the blog, (ii) rear of Shaftesbury Avenue & (iii) Feltham Arena carpark.
(ii) rear of Shaftesbury Avenue
The other side was not too bad in terms of litter:
What is clear about the above, as it is between Helen Avenue and New Road and as it on the land between Station Estate Road and New Road is that the problem is worst within the nooks and crannies. On open space it is not as bad.
(iii) Feltham Arena carpark
This is a mess. Here are some pics:
4) Open Spaces
This is very positive and Continental are on top of grass cutting.
Land between Shakespeare Avenue, Burns Avenue and Shaftesbury Avenue is one that is an improvement:
By Helen Avenue:
Blenheim Park also looked fine but I do not have a picture.
5) On my way home
Tagging outside 70 Shakespeare Avenue:
Damaged footway on corner outside 152 Burns Avenue:
Tagging on streetsign:
Litterpick needed between 90 and 124 Burns Avenue:
Tagging outside 127 Shaftesbury Avenue:
A lot to report and will be done in the morning.
