I wonder if any other readers of your newspaper feel the same way that I do about litter being dropped repeatedly on the streets of our town. I refer to the pink rubber bands left on my doorstep, pathway and the street that I live in by our postal delivery workers.

We are constantly being asked to take responsibility for our own actions, so I have an idea.....why don't we have an arrangement where anyone bringing a pink rubber band to the depot in Warne Road is given a reward of 50 pence per band and this is in turn deducted from the wage of the postal worker on that particular delivery round, who knows, if you hit the litterers in the pocket they may put the elastic bands back in their own pockets and recycle them back at the depot, wouldn't that be nice?

I really hate to see litter all over the streets of Weston and this, however small, only adds to it. Come on guys! It's not rocket science is it! Stop dropping litter on our streets, who knows, the money saved may go some way to keeping vital rural post offices open.

I know you do a great job, please don't be so untidy with it. It's not big and it's not clever... Thank you.
