Litter and dog mess everywhere (all over fenham)

The green area along Queensway is covered in litter. Sadly I think the families who live near by let their children just dump their litter here because most of it is crisps, sweet and fizzy drink bottles (after a weekend it is worse). I have lived in Fenham since the end of May and this has been a constant issue. I have just moved to Fenham from Jesmond and sadly Fenham has a bad reputation within the wider Newcastle area. I actually really like it and would happily recommend it. However, one of the main issues in Fenham is the amount of litter and dog mess on all the streets. Walking around Jesmond you don't get this. I walked along Fenham Hall Drive last night and the amount of litter is disgusting. I have had to pick up a number of items from my front garden from people just walking by and throwing it in. Some how the the local council and residents need to start working together to correct this problem. The lack of bins along Queensway, Kingsway and other estates doesn't help. Maybe enforcement could be stepped up!
