Cheeky littering signs put up around East Preston

Tongue-in-cheek littering signs reminding people not to litter in East Preston have been put up.

Erected by the village’s parish council, they say: ‘Don’t be a tosser. You brought your rubbish here, please take it home with you’.

The signs were put up by the council’s amenities committee which has responsibility for some of the village’s greenspaces.

Chairman of the committee, councillor Rick McElroy, said: “A few residents showed us photos of similar posters elsewhere in the country and we thought they might be a reminder to visitors to the village not to leave their litter behind irresponsibly.

“We live in a beautiful place and as a council, we try to do what we can to keep it lovely.

“We would also like to thank the Keep East Preston Tidy group for their help.

“We are always happy to discuss residents’ other ideas for improving the village.”
