King George V Playing Field- The Smoking Gun?

Did you know that several kind volunteers take it in turns to pick litter up from the playing field most days of per week?

This week one volunteer counted all of the litter that they picked up on their three days which is associated with smoking — this may sound very sad, but I suppose it struck a chord with that person and so that is what they did.

To make this article more interesting and to provoke more involvement on the matter, we invite you to GUESS how many items this volunteer picked up in the following categories over the three days:

* dogends ( sometimes known as dimps)

* flexible plastic tubes that hold filters

* cigarette papers

* cigarette packets

* small plastic sachets that may or may not have contained a material that could have been smoked.

Please send your guess for each category to the Editor with any comments.

The actual numbers will be published in the near future, possibly with some filtered comments.
