SIR - What a lovely surprise when walking the footpath behind Monk's Walk School, WGC, recently to see a young man clearing the rubbish from the hedgerow that borders the school playing field.
When my wife approached him and asked if he was a pupil on detention duties, he replied that, in fact, he was a soldier in the British Army home on leave from Afghanistan.
He had collected 15 bags of rubbish, crisp bags, piles of paper and packaging.
So, here is a man on leave from the most dangerous place on earth, making sure our town is clean and tidy.
I hope the pupils and staff of the school feel very ashamed of the mess they have left there over the years and that they appreciate the work done by this brave soldier.
Proof surely, that the patriotism and discipline instilled in him by his parents and the army has made him a far better man. Well done sir!
