As it seems that the council are at last preparing to do something about the litter situation by the spring of this year around the Wood Lane car park and Middlewood Way itself, I am prepared to hang fire on releasing the names of the council employees who in the past have promised to act and failed to do so.  However, if the area has not been cleared completely of all rubbish by the beginning of August, then watch this space, as I will finally know then that only hot air is being produced from my efforts.


Dog waste is regularly placed in plastic bags and strewn around Middlewood Way, often on the path itself.  The nonesense of this is just breathtaking for the very reasons which you state.  One wonders at the mentality of these specimens...I do not seem to hear too many reports of asylum inmates going AWOL...?

I agree that the throwing away of the bags into the undergrowth is stupid and thoughtless - however I have noticed that the bins to hold the filled bags are sometimes overflowing.  A note to the council perhaps to empty them more often might help.  This is the one thing that puts me off having a dog - having to pick up the mess - it turns my stomach!

The Parks & Recreation Dept. have recently put new steps in place to combat that problem and the shortage of bags. Things are very much improved now so well done them.
Bagging up certainly beats the hell out of changing nappies.

Can't believe it's only just sunk in for me.. !

I am a responsible Alsation owner with a nine month old baby too.. I spend almost all of my time bagging poo!

Still.. It's stopped me biting my nails!

Well, as I promised I would start to name names if litter bins were not forthcoming by the end of August, would Ray Gent please tell us why, after promising me on the phone a few times over two years ago that he would seriously look into the need for a litter bin in Wood Lane Car Park, and for one or two around the playing fields and along Middlewood Way he has neither provided them nor rung me nor written to me to explain what the Council's policy on this has been decided?  

We dozen or so unpaid volunteers are fed up with collecting litter from these areas, but then having to take it all to the way to the council tip at Railway Road in order to discharge it is quite unacceptable.  And whilst we are on the matter, how about signs regularly placed reminding people that not only dog faeces is unacceptable, but that throwing litter is a punishable offence.

If I receive no response within 30 days then watch this space for more names...

-And whilst on, I forgot to mention that the considerable research which I have done on the commonly-held belief that dog poo causes blindness in children, whilst apparently theoretically possible in very, very rare cases, has produced no confirmed example of this, in this country in over 40 years.  Check the number of children killed by cars last year against this statistic. Most of us take our children to the doctor here, where unpleasant symptoms are exhibited, and get them sorted out...

Three days have been designated for members of the public to help to clean up Middlewood Way; 31st July, 28th August & 25th September.  On the first two dates I was a long way from the Marple area, and I teach all day on Saturdays through term time, so that last date I will also have to miss.  Should a Sunday ever be convenient I would be there like a shot, so please post here if that is ever decided.   Cheers,  Ritz.

Hello Ritzmar, and anyone else interested in Middlewood Way,
Saw your posting and note you would'nt mind a Sunday work day.
If there is anyone else interested in "work days" please send me an email to:
Have a look at the Community Council's site and go to the "Notice Board".
The "Three work days" are now completed and have made a difference, as do those volunteers who collect litter between Wood Lane car park and Rose Hill Station.

SMBC staff have been very helpful, and of course SMBC supplied tools, refreshments and generally directed the sessions - THANKS to them.
