Users of Rothesay’s public park who persist in dropping litter in the area have been criticised in a letter to The Buteman.
Rothesay resident Alison Cross wrote in response to Roddie Leitch from Bute Youth Football Coaching, whose letter highlighting the problem of dog fouling in the area was published in our December 13 edition.
“After almost every game played at the Meadows,” Alison wrote, “I have had to pick up knots of sticky tape, empty ‘energy drinks bottles’, water bottles, tin cans, fag packets, crisp bags and even an empty brandy bottle (glass) and even a discarded (full!) nappy bag when walking my dog.
I totally agree that as a dog owner it is our responsibility to clean up after our dogs, but surely as sportsmen and women, taking personal responsibility for your detritus is as important as learning about good sportsmanship?”
