Let me start off by saying that I am a most charitable man and have produced, so far, 47 charity musical galas in London over some 30 years which total, for various charities, some £3million.
So, I am sorry to say that it is with amazement I have noticed a daily mound of second hand “rubbish” on the pavement outside the Make a Difference charity shop in High Street, Shoreham.
I am disgusted that the council or the highways have allowed this mess, especially in a high street.
Furthermore, last weekend the charity added a rail of second hand dresses and a table on the pavement!
Friends of ours, visiting from New Jersey, said they were appalled at our council for allowing this and that in New Jersey it wouldn’t be allowed for even one day.
What must our visitors and tourists think of Shoreham, which is lovely and now let down by this “boot sale” visual?
As a resident for some nine years, come on Adur, show your mettle and have this disgusting mess cleaned up as soon as possible!
