Another classic from Geoff - a few sensible suggestions, which quickly give way to stabilising wheelie bins and pleasing the Lord.
My Wish List for 2013
Here is a list of my wishes for the New Year.
Out authorities adhere to the basic commandment in the good book - To treat others as you would have them treat you!
That every village and town is given equal attention regarding routine maintenance and services.
That people stop 'looking' important and be important (in the eyes of the lord).
That areas of green space are protected from unsightly developments and blots on the landscape taking away national habitats in the process.
That wheelie bins are made stable in their design, have pockets in them for information leaflets regarding alterations in collections etc, and so that litter is not scattered everywhere as present.
That motorists refrain from parking on pavements preventing mothers with small children and elderly people from using their 'refuge' from speeding traffic etc.
