Litter pick is eye opener for mayor
A MAYOR has swapped his chain of office for a litter pick in an attempt to help clean up his town.
Councillor Malcolm Curtice, mayor of Gorseinon, has joined a gang of volunteers and Asda workers in cleaning up the streets.
Mr Curtice, however, was not impressed with the amount of litter in the area.
He said: "This is the first time I have done this. We were only collecting for about an hour and we gathered 100 bags of litter. People obviously don't care about their town. It's absolutely ridiculous."

While praising the volunteers, who included people from a local day centre as well as Asda, he added: "I wish people would take more pride in their town."
