LITTER: Undertaking a thankless job

One morning, as I was walking up the stairs through the wood to the castle, I spied a man walking his dog and picking up litter.

He had a nearly full plastic bag, the dog’s leash in one hand and a grabber in the other.

As he came up the bank of the burn with the dog, I said: “Thank you for doing that.”

A little while later, we crossed paths again and had a brief conversation.

He said he knew of about ten other people who do this.

These folk are making Morpeth a better place, tackling a thankless job that would be needless if we were all more careful.

Kudos to all who are willing to pick up the trash they see on the ground.
