Rose to the occasion

It takes a team!
Tonight we cleared an abandoned campsite near Rose Hill which has been unoccupied for a year or more.
It quickly became clear that it had been a family with little children living here. There were toys, baby clothes and nappies amongst the pots, pans adult clothing. Discarded food and drink containers, lots of sodden bedding, the tent and awning, a rubber dinghy which was being used to keep the tent off the hard ground, a hoover; it was a huge haul to get up to the ring road for collection by Oxford Direct Services.
We really hope the occupants abandoned their campsite because they found a solid roof over their heads.
