This post is to the person who left me an Anonymous message on my blog about the Rubbish below Uxbridge Lock.
Firstly it does say before you post a comment.
I am sorry but I DO NOT publish ANONYMOUS comments, nice ones or otherwise, so if you want your comment posted please leave your name when posting, I will then do my best to reply. Thank you for leaving me a message.
Secondly. I did not phone the Canal and River Trust, I e-mailed them with a photograph and sent them a message on Twitter. Which is how I always correspond with them because if they can see the problem then something always gets done We have been told by the Canal and River Trust if a photograph is sent it is then recorded, if you ring it is not.
Thirdly I was not sailing by as you put it I was walking a long the towpath and you would have known that had you read my posts.
Fourthly I go out and pick up rubbish on a regular basis, which again you would know if you read my blog on a regular basis. We always clean after other people when we moor up.
You may as you said find my "comments bloody annoying". But I am of a generation who see's it as a problem which needs talking about. I hate litter being dropped and dog poo being left and if that is wrong then that makes me a bad person. As long as people do it I will write about it on my blog and I will continue to pick it up. I wish I could have picked up all the rubbish left below the lock, but there was no bin to put it in and there was no way I could carry that much back to the boat.
Thank you for taking the time to read my posting and for leaving me a message.
