I've just taken a stroll through Finsbury Park, and I'm appalled at how much litter there is. Cans, cups, bottles, plastic bags, endless gas canisters, balloons and discarded packaging, takeaway trays strewn around and left in little clusters under trees, clearly indicating some group's had their fun and just wandered off.
The area below the tennis courts towards Seven Sisters Road is particularly bad, yet people are still happily sitting there eating, drinking, sunbathing and so on surrounded by this mess, so I expect some of them will be contributing to it further.
If it's easy to carry this stuff into the park, surely it's just as easy to take it away? Or easier, use one of the many bins, none of which I saw was full? How hard can it be?
Sadly by ranting on here I doubt I'm speaking to those responsible, since anyone lacking sufficient self-awareness to clear up after themselves clearly does not give a shit about their local neighbourhood.
What's the solution?
