Disgusting fireworks at Halo - FAO Free Press.

As the Free press often pinched photos from here I suspect that they visit from time to time so here is an article for them.

As a responsible dog owner, if I allow my dog to poo and do not pick it up then I am very likely to be quickly vilified in the local paper as ruining a local beauty spot.

However, since November 2015 there has been left overs from someones firework display all over the Haslingden Halo paths without a single word being said.

I find it absolutely disgusting that someone could have enjoyed themselves in November and not done a thing to clear up their left over rubbish that is finding it's way all over the local beauty spot.







These are just 2 examples, there are many more bits having been blown all over the area since then. (The free press can use these photo's.)

If I allowed a pile of dog poo to remain like this something would soon be done about it - so why not do something about this - whoever this was, shame on you - get back up there and clear it away!

Agree with you totally. Disgraceful.
Those guilty few should get back up there and get it cleared up and if not those guilty few then how about the other guilty many who are given court orders for community service ?
What exactly do they do as penance ?

I have seen a group once in a park in Burnley litter picking but never seen any locally & no idea what they actually are ordered to do.

Rossendale Pride do fantastic work with their voluntary litter picks . I applaud their endeavours out with the lilac bags in all weathers tackling the grot spots that other less community spirited individuals create. But could some of this not be done by those not volunteering but actually ordered to do so, especially the more arduous tasks ?

And come the bad weather with frozen pavements when people are asked to volunteer to clear pathways near sheltered housing for those with mobility restrictions . Could this not be ordered for them too ?

I have never been able to understand either why are our council taxes are spent on tasks that those sentenced to Community Orders could undertake ? Graffiti removal & chewing gum off pavement etc

I suspect that because I am the one promoting this - it will be up to me on a dog walk to pick it up (I tend to do this in Whittaker park).

Re: Disgusting fireworks at Halo - FAO Free Press.

Well I'll be blowed!

It's all gone! (well the piles have).

I wonder if the perpetrator or council etc saw this thread?

Anyone got the paper editions of the free press - was it in it at all?

Hi Matty

It was cleared before it hit the paper, roughly 25 bags in total
