The Cheery Street Sweeper

Never without a decent word to say, Knightsbridge’s cheeriest street sweeper is an asset to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Unlike the incompetent, avaricious councillors representing the area, this diligent worker never moans and he never complains. Come sun, rain, wind or snow, here is someone who takes pride in his work and here is someone who is a joy to encounter. He deserves an honour and should be commended for such.

  1. Here here! Roadsweepers, drain clearers, dustbin collectors and more are vital services too often taken for granted, and too often without thanks. These skilled workforces turn out come snow, rain or shine and perform said duties with expertise and commitment. And if one goes above and beyond, as with this particular street sweeper, that should never go unnoticed. I live in rural Berkshire and once a week, very early in the morning, walk my Springer Spaniel in a beautiful riverside park where I meet a team of cleaners who ‘sweep’ the park for litter including picking up endless fag ends cast aside by thankless visitors. They do this with amazing commitment so when the park gets busy from 9.30am onwards it looks every inch the beautiful spot it is. And every week, to do my little bit, I also pick up some litter which gives me the option to hand it over and thank the team. And it’s obvious from the look on their faces how much they appreciate this tiny bit of effort on my part. Thanks chaps and chapesses!

  2. These poor people have to do the disgusting job of clearing up after the trashy people who infest the area around Harrods. Matthew is right They are always cheerful despite working in all weathers.
    Harrods pay a vast amount to C. Gov in business rates. Some if it should be diverted to pay for more street cleaners. Unfair this small team should carry the burden of the slobbish visitors.
