Jaqaw se naqgħu f’Ħaġar Qim?

Bejn l-Imnajdra u Ħaġar Qim hemm passaġġ iffrekwentat minn Maltin u turisti. Dan il-passaġġ huwa xi ftit perikoluż minħabba li qiegħed f’ livell aktar għoli mil-bqija tal-art tal-madwar, għalhekk huwa faċli li t- tfal jaqgħu fil-ġenb tiegħu kif wieħed jista’ jara fir-ritratt. Nissuġġerixxi li l-ġnub jimtlew bil-ħamrija biex jieħu l-istess livell u fl-istess ħin jistgħu jitħawwlu xi pjanti, b’ hekk ikunu qed isebbħu l-ambjent.

It is never a dull moment walking along the countryside! Unfortunately it was the ‘carpenter’s’ turn to litter this rural road. Such litter can easily be taken to Civic Amenity Sites which are found in several places around the island.

What is your litter footprint?
