I had no plan to do a part 3 to our weekend. It wasn’t until arriving back home and walking through Manchester that i decided i would do a pt.3.
So why have i done it.
Well click on this link and have a look at the photographs i took just walking around the town of Chester. They are not altered images in any way and were not taken to emphasise the point of this post.
What didn’t hit me full in the face until walking back home was how spotless Chester was. There was no litter, no overflowing bins, no overpoweringly smelly back streets. No fast food bags lying on street corners, no pizza boxes and fish and chip trays left on steps or walls or grass verges, no cans smashed on top of spiked railings. No office detritus pilled up in the road.
I could go on.
Walking back through Manchester from Piccadilly to Shudehill bus station i was ashamed to say this is my City. It was an absolute tip. The areas where visitors to our City would get their first impressions were a smelly littered disgrace and the walk in between was no better.
I could expand further but i’m sure you get the picture.
Manchester council need to send somebody to Chester and have a walk round with a member of their waste management team. Come back and implement how they control it. Because at the moment i think Manchester have become blasé and are now a blinkered lot. And please don’t tell it is just lack of money because Cheshire and Chester are in the same boat as Manchester. And they don’t have Arab Millions being spent in the town which must be saving the council a fortune.
I apologise to visitors who no doubt will be shocked at the mess and can only hope it improves quickly.
