Can users of Lewes to Ringmer cycle path please take their litter home

Now that our lovely new Ringmer to Lewes cycle path is open, could I ask anyone who uses it to please take your litter home.

Don’t throw it on the ground for someone else to pick up.

On Wednesday afternoon – the day of the opening – I spent two hours picking up litter along the Ringmer section.

I came home with two bin bags full.

This was just from the cycle path, but there is still a lot of rubbish on the highway side of the hedge.It’s disgusting and it seems to be getting worse.

I am one of the small group of volunteers in Ringmer who do our best to keep our village tidy.If anyone is interested in joining us in our fight against litter, I can be contacted via the parish clerk in the village hall or the local community groups listing at the back of the parish magazine under Ringmer Volunteers.
