Tackling Litter.

Fellow boater and blogger Maffi is now continuously cruising on his winter holiday after having spent the summer working hard. Any litter that he sees on his travels he meticulously gathers into black sacks to stow on the roof of his boat ‘Milly M’ for proper disposal later. He has taken all this upon himself  quite voluntarily.The larger items he finds that he can’t deal with such as washing machines and televisions, he reports to the local council for them to deal with. Whilst on his latest foray along the Coventry Canal he has sought the help of the council and local newspaper to highlight their litter problem. Here is the link,

We hope that all his efforts will pay off with a positive outcome, we will wait to see what happens!

Meanwhile, most boaters and community groups do their share of litter picking too, but Maffi must be congratulated on his continual one man campaign against litter louts and fly tippers.

Instead of an award though, maybe the Canal and River Trust could issue him with a free boat licence, because he’s worth it!
