National Trust fires a warning shot at takeaway 'picnics'
By Richard Wright | 23rd July 2021
Deliveries of food to a well-known beauty spot on the border of Gloucestershire have caused a National Trust manager to fire off a warning shot to local takeaways.
The manager at The Kymin in the Wye Valley has written to takeaway shops to ask them not to deliver chips, pizzas and kebabs because of the mess that gets left behind.
The hill-top beauty spot between the Forest of Dean and Monmouthshire, says the Trust welcomes picnics at the site, but does not welcome the litter of bottles and empty boxes.
Manager Alan Evans, according to a report in the Western Daily Press, didn't want to single out one particular takeaway, so he wrote to all of them in the town of Monmouth.
He said: "If people want to have a picnic they are more than welcome to as long as they take their litter home with them.
"But this is the first time I have heard of a takeaway delivering straight to a National Trust site. I didn't want to single out one business so I wrote to them all.
