Picnic Area Pollution

The scene above often greets visitors to the Wom Brook Walk, particularly on a weekend. The amount of litter shown in the above photograph is a comparatively small amount compared to some sights that have been witnessed, especially the morning after the night before!

Distressingly, no amounts of reminders seem to appeal to the collective consciences of the minority who seem hell-bent on creating this visual pollution.

Fortunately local volunteers who are determined to maintain the appeal of this valuable resource in Wombourne work without prompting to clear the rubbish away, especially on a weekend, when District Council workers who normally do such a good job of keeping the area clear of rubbish, don’t work. Our thanks to both groups for their tireless efforts.
