CONGRATULATIONS to Richmond Council's rubbish clearance department.
On Friday morning at quarter to eight, I walked along The Terrace through polythene bags, food cartons, bottles etc, but returned at nine o'clock to find it absolutely pristine.
Many thanks to the wonderful staff who take such a pride in their job.
I had thought that possibly the council was cutting down and was so pleased to find that it is maintaining its high standard.
