When I went to Copsticks they were on the corner of Causeyside st and Gordon street . Right above the Lews store. 

Very possible it wasn't Copsticks, but it was definitely a dentist in that building. I remember she bought me a wee metal model plane, a Gloster Javelin, for being a brave wee boy! There must have been a toy shop close by.

Now reliably informed the Dentist was called Dr Storie.  I started going to Copsticks much later above Lews.

With Storie being there, I would imagine the wee toy plane came from Walker Street post office .

Following on from ma wee photos this English lady was voluntarily cleaning up in Kilnside Rd.  That was her third and final bag after cleaning up in the Seedhill area as her hands were getting numb.  I'm lost for words on how I can pay her and others who do this, the highest compliments.

There are some terrific people in our local communities who utilise the funded “Team up To Clean up” initiative. 
 

The sad reality is that there are many more selfish bastards that live in our communities who for reasons I can’t fathom can’t take home their rubbish or pick up after their dogs.

Yes, that's the organisation she's a member of.  Littering is one of my pet hates and I don't think the government is devoting enough resolve in tackling it (SORRY for going off topic from the thread!!!)

They should introduce Singapore style laws on littering and enforce them.

I’ve been ashamed to hear visitors to Scotland rave about the natural beauty of the landscapes and the architecture of the buildings then say “But why is there so much litter and graffiti?” 

You summed it up earlier mate...............:(

I recently paid a visit to Castle Douglas and walked around the town for a while and I'm NOT exaggerating when I say that I didn't see one piece of litter anywhere including side streets.  It was unbelievably clean.

Lovely, lovely people down there!  :rolleyes:

(That DSS walks about with his eyes shut, I bet...)
