KEEPING (TIN) TABS

The Tin Tabs wooden shelter, near The Monument, played host to a worrying amount of litter first thing this morning.
What a shame some folk just don't care, as there are TWO litter bins within a few yards.
It's not long since this column praised the efforts of our long-serving roadsweeper for getting out and about on Brigg streets with his brush.
We haven't seen him for some time, and this morning, yet again, a street cleaning vehicle belonging to North Lincolnshire Council was out at dawn.
This machine is great for getting at the rubbish discarded on public thoroughfares.
But a human roadsweeper can, to paraphrase the Heineken adverts, get at litter others cannot reach.
Like the pizza box-strewn seats inside the Tin Tabs?
PS Pleased to report all the mess had been tidied up by teatime.
