Three cheers to Len Samways, the 84-year-old gent from Headington who has been cleaning his street once a week for the past 30 years.

This man still has a real sense of pride in his community and doesn’t like seeing it trashed, literally, by the feckless and slovenly.

Len believes littering is getting worse and we can believe him.

So on behalf of your neighbours Len we thank you. And we’d like to hear of other unsung heroes who still try to make a difference.
