Rounding on the rubbish

 

Sir, – Walking up Herbert Park one evening recently I noticed a young woman ahead of me picking up pieces of litter as she went along. When I caught up with her at the traffic lights, I commended her on her civic activity. “Oh,” she replied, “I live on the road and I hate litter”. If only there were a few more people like her around. – Yours, etc,

CONSUELO O’CONNOR,
