We love Parga and the surrounding areas - it is one of favourite Greek destinations. However, during our recent visit we were a little sad to see that the rubbish problem seems to back. I am guessing, and I am sure someone will put me right on this! Am guessing that the local municipality/council do not have the funding for much needed street cleaners and services. Parga Town is generally good, however, as you head in the direction of the BP Garage and Fire Station, things get gradually worse, Everything from large potholes filled with rubbish and water bottles to abandoned coaches, which have themseslves become open to fly tipping! The walk through the olive groves to Lichnos is beautiful, however, due to thunder and lightning we chose to walk back via the main road. The amount of rubbish just thrown into the verges was incredible. If this is all down to the tourists they should be ashamed of themselves! However, I suspect that it is not just the tourist that is adding to this problem, but that of a similar problem here in the UK. People love to keep their cars clean - so it would appear much easier to just throw your rubbish out of the car window! & not forgetting let's walk or drive to a beautiful location, enjoy our BBQ and picnic and then head off home and just leave our rubbish behind! I know the local Parga people formed cleaning parties a few years ago, not sure if they are still in operation - I hope they are. It is just such a shame to see an area of outstanding and natural beauty marred by a load of old rubbish! One gentleman we spoke to has been visiting Parga every year for 29 years and he was so concerned by this that he was going to write to the Greek Embassy! Myself and my husband found ourselves picking up rubbish on our travels in the hope that every little helps!
