8 year old comments on grit bin vandalism


"Not a good siet . Look After things . This grit shood be in the grit bin. Somboddy has tiped it over.Somboddy has allso painted the sien . I don,t want to see this again." Lisa

See more re grit bins here - both Parishes are now exploring which bins they will consider upgrading. Certainly this one photographed is repeatedly knocked over and the salt ends up being washed into the brook where it must play havoc with the biodiversity.

The bin in the photograph realy is not suitable for the the storage of Grit Salt. The Bin should have a lid to protect the Grit and also should be coloured yellow. Many council,s throughout the UK buy their Grit Bins on Line at www.impbins.com I think you should direct them to the site to improve the situation.

Have been pushing for improvements for a long time - both Parishes are now considering some improvements but the County wont fund. However I'm hopeful we will see some movement on this soon....
