The Guardian

It started with a patch of waste ground near my childhood home and a pair of rusty shears. One corner of Worthing’s Maybridge estate had been forgotten by the council and was overgrown. Some old, broken fence panels had been dumped there and the overgrown bushes had collected litter blown by the wind.

My local councillor said it couldn’t be touched for legal reasons, but I went out one morning with shears and binbags and made a start anyway.
