I AGREE with the article about street cleaning in the town. My neighbours and I have shops in the Cockpit behind Eaden Lilley and have given up waiting for the council to arrange to have it swept.

We now do it ourselves, but I really don't see why we should when we are charged such high business rates.

The worst times for litter are after market days - the traders don't seem to take enough care about disposing of their rubbish.

Apart from their detritus we regularly get pub glasses, vomit and cigarette butts - the worst I ever experienced was a completely different kind of bodily fluid excreted all up my wall!!

Whilst I am on the subject may I remind readers that the Cockpit is not a bicycle track - there is going to be a nasty accident down there one day when somebody steps out of a shop and smacks straight into an inconsiderate cyclist.

I am fed-up with the verbal abuse I receive when I ask people not to ride their bikes down there.
