|Count of rubbish||82|

|Approach roads to town are well kept as is the side streets. The area of most concern would be Main Street from the Hospice shop down to the garage.|
|There was a significant amount of cigarette litter. It appeared to be connected to take aways on pubs on street. It may be worth asking the local businesses in that area to keep a close eye on it.|
