Do us courtesy of responding
I was pleased to read that staff from Asda Fosse Park have arranged to pick up litter on fields near their store.
Aylestone Meadows Appreciation Society (Amas) approached the store, both in person and by letter in February, pointing out the unacceptable and unsightly amount of litter on fields nearby (much of it identifiable as from Asda).
We returned a number of abandoned trolleys found in fields and watercourses, including Aylestone Meadows nature reserve.
We also urged Asda to take responsibility for its trolleys.

While the manager we spoke to appeared sympathetic, we were dismayed that Asda did not even bother to respond to the detailed letter we wrote about litter and trolleys.
In that letter, Amas offered to join with staff in an attempt to deal with the issue.
I hope Asda has begun to take its responsibilities to the environment and the wider community more seriously.
If it wishes to work with Amas, maybe it would do us the courtesy of replying to our letter.

What a lovely Sunday afternoon we had at Kilworth House. After a wonderful lunch in the conservatory, we had a stroll through the parkland to the open-air theatre.
By this time the sun had appeared, which added to the view of the surrounding countryside.
The show performed, The Sound of Music, was very professional, with superb singing and believable characters. Congratulations all round.
What a wonderful birthday present from my friends.
I will certainly make a return visit to Kilworth House.
