Bin and Gone...

Now you see it, now you don't....

A very convenient bin, particulalrly for conscientious dog walkers, has disappeared. Located next to a bench celebrating players of Shrovetide Football and (fairly) regulalry emptied by the Distrct Council for several years, there is now just a plinth and some poorly directed pieces of litter to show where it once stood.

Keith Postlethwaite from Derbyshire Dales District Council commented that the bin was not one of theirs but had been provided by Mr Gadsby the developer and had been emptied by the District Council as a service to Ashbourne. He did not know why it had been removed.

A pity since now dog owners will have to cross a busy road to dispose of their 'doggy bags'.
