Misc 6 = cigarette boxes
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.
