Fly Tipping in KidsgroveGiven that the Kidsgrove travellers are making the national headlines once again today and the statement produced by Newcastle Borough Council and Staffordshire Police yesterday regarding the issue, we would love to hear your thoughts (the tax payer) on the service you get from the Council and Police.

  • When was the last time that your street was visited on a regular basis to be cleaned and litter collected?
  • When was the last time that your area was visited regularly by Police just to "keep an eye out" on what is happening in the local area?
  • Do you get your rubbish collected free of charge if you just leave it outside in black bags?

These are just three questions that we would love to hear your thoughts on. It does appear that our travelling community gets these services provided on tap and free of charge.

Maybe Kidsgrove residents should start to take advantage of this free waste collection service and leave their bags of unwanted rubbish on the Birchenwood Car Park for collection by the local council? Well if its good enough for some, then it should be good enough for everyone surly?

Clearly it should go without saying that no resident should engage in such action as this would be irresponsible and could be deemed to be fly tipping.

It came to me today after driving pass the "gypsy encampment" in Kidsgrove that one of the things the judge said was that the mother of due child had to have a permanent address?????? Where do all their posh cars Etc gat registered to.."""FIELD IN KIDSGROVE???"""..

Also why don't the NBC park a skip with them and ask them to put their rubbish in it instead of running around behind them everyday picking up the rubbish...

It will cost enough to clear up after they are gone without doing it everyday..

Hope the council will help the football club to get the ready for the tournament.

I'm sure they have the equipment that can be used.

Had my RANT..Any Answers????

Last time litter collected ? -- never seen them here
Area visited by police to keep an eye out? - never seen here
Rubbish collected for free? Never happened

Maybe I should buy myself a caravan and go and set up on a foot pitch myself and ruin things for all the local kids in the area .... I'd be well looked after by the officials in the area !!
