About a week ago I saw a man kneeling down at the side of the road near to my house. Wondering what he could be doing I got closer and realised there was some litter on the road, which the gentleman was picking up piece by piece and putting into a bin bag. At the time I walked on by humming along to my music and didn’t think any more about it.

Later on in the evening, though, I started thinking about what I had seen earlier that day. I thought about the area I was from in Birmingham and whether someone would do this there. The short answer is probably not. 

I get a real sense that people take pride in the communities in which they live in Exeter. There is a desire and attitude to keep the place looking nice, an attitude typified by this gentleman at the side of the road. That is why I love Exeter.
