Lots of litter, but why no bins? Yousay IN YOUR OPINION...

I WOULD like to bring to your attention the scene that greeted visitors to the Adizone multi-sports area at Barry Island on Tuesday, August 14, at noon. Litter was prevalent in every corner.

This makes a complete mockery of the Vale council's zero tolerance on litter. How in heaven's name can people be educated on the illegal deposit of litter when this facility only six months since it opened still does not have any refuse receptacles? The original plans for the complex clearly show two such important bins strategically installed so, one wonders, where are they? It was also revealed prior to the opening of the tourist attraction that the ramp did not have a safety barrier along its length, which was exposing a potential danger to fear-free young children.

It was also pointed out that the perimeter wall adjacent to the ramp was leaning dangerously toward the ramp and is covered in places with masonry-attacking vegetation, which is clearly adding further danger of this wall potentially injuring innocent visitors to this facility.

Along with other concerned local people I am also very disappointed with this issue and would hope that the Vale of Glamorgan Council will address these extremely serious points at their earliest convenience.
