Message from Brigitte regarding the current rubbish situation around the house and the avenue. Dear visitors, Please don't throw your rubbish into the bushes. Plastic bags full of dogpoo? What makes you think that's a good idea? Please don't. Not in our place, not anywhere. Brigitte (Shelswell-White)
