Both Alexandra Road and Maitland Road had lots of litter this morning.

Most of it appears to come from residents recycling bins and is either spilt onto the roads during collect or blown out by wind or moved by foxes.

There are perhaps 10-15 houses on each road. The houses generally looked well kept and indeed sell for 900k to 1.2million.

So the owners are not uneducated and shoulf be able to realise that with a £1.99 litter picker from penge high street poundland they could in less than 5 minutes collect this rubbish and have a tidy street. It really is no effort at all. Everybody wins - the residents of the street will get a reputation for being grown up community minded folks and people walking through will think that lovely kind sensible practical people must live here.

We cannot rely on Bromley Council to come and clean these streets as much as we would like so we just have to use a little common street and take ownership. It's not Noble Prize winning stuff to pick up a tin can / plastic bottle from the road for say 10m each side of your houses. It is just being a good neighbour.

Let's lift our game on the streets of Penge ❤️
