It beggars ‘be-leaf’

HAVE you heard the joke about two lorries, four men, two days and one leaf blower?

For two days this week, I watched a man with a very small leaf blower, slowly blowing leaves off the pavement onto the road.

Four men in West Sussex highways lorries sat and watched, and then every so often got out of their comfy vehicles and did something (I couldn’t work out quite what) with the small amount of leaves in the gutter.

I wonder what the cost of this wasteful excercise is, as I assume it is taking place all round Worthing?

Given the dreadful state of Wiston Avenue (no surface left in places), as a ratepayer, I would prefer the money was spent on resurfacing, filling in potholes, etc.
