The village clear up on Sunday 15 April attracted a handful of enthusiasts, mostly as far I can ascertain, the ‘old’ hands.
Now this is quite acceptable and I can understand that newcomers to the village and those of you who are ensconced in your ivory castles do not wish to get involved in any village activities. However, I do think in the interest of cleanliness and the general look of the village which, after all, will affect the value of your freehold asset, each householder should take responsibility for keeping the roadside along the boundary of their property free of the rubbish which individuals periodically drop.
Newcomers may not be aware that the Council Tax which is levied on those of us living in the countryside provides a great deal less by way of services than that enjoyed by householders living in a town, in particular, the regular clearing of rubbish along the street. So to conclude this depressing plea, let us all take on the responsibility of keeping our own boundary free of rubbish on a regular basis and, dare I ask, perhaps showing a bit more interest in Fulking and the village activities.
On this note we still need volunteers for the fair on Sunday 29 July and Louise needs bottles for the Tombola.
Have a great summer!
