Do something about Vera’s litter!

Do something about litter in Vera!
VERA LITTER: One of many photos that Steven Mullard forwarded to the Euro Weekly News Photo credit: Steven Mullard

STEVEN MULLARD intends to continue bombarding Vera town hall until they clear away the litter in front of Gold Gym.

He has emailed every town hall department that he has an address for, describing the rubbish-strewn street and asking, “What are you going to do about it?”

Workmen and street cleaners do nothing to pick up rubbish that’s blown from the bin area, Steven seethed to the Euro Weekly News.  There was never rubbish there before, Steven explained, but now it accumulates each day.


“It was clean but now it’s a s**t-tip,” he said.  “Maybe your workmen are getting too comfortable in their jobs,” Steven suggested to Vera town hall.  “If so, sack them and give the job to someone else.”  Spain has many unemployed people who would happily queue up for a job, he pointed out.

He owns many flats nearby, Steven said, and complained that the area is “dirty, dirty, vile, mucky and scummy.”

The rubbish shown in the photos that Steven forwarded to the Euro Weekly News was still there, he said.  “This spreads diseases and Covid, especially the dirty used tissues,” he fulminated.

“This area needs the c**p picked up from the street and the bins.”

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
