PAR has been spruced up after volunteers turned out to collect 25 bags of rubbish from streets and footpaths.

Twenty-one people joined the litter-pick around the St Andrews Lake area and collected a wide variety of waste: everything from bottles, cans and cigarette butts to car wheel-trims and an unwanted umbrella.

This was the third litter-pick organised this year by Rosie Lean.

"It's becoming a very social occasion with the meeting of like-minded people taking pride in Par and the environment in which we live," she said, thanking Sonia Clyne, members of the Par Community Association, Mike Freemantle and the Friends of Par Beach, the litter-pickers and Cornwall Council waste contractor Cory which collected the bags of rubbish.

    All credit to those volunteers but wouldn't it be a good idea if some effort was put into education children from an early age to respect their surroundings and not drop litter in the first place. Many areas of our towns and cities are eyesores due to lazy inconsiderate people, who should know better, not disposing of their litter properly. When caught, which is rarely, they should be given a really hefty fine and named and shamed.
