Shopping trolleys

by

Shopping trolleys (or carts, if you prefer) have been in the news this week following the launch by British Waterways of their Trolley Report Form. Apparently 3,000 shopping trolleys are hoisted from its network of waterways every year at a cost of over £150,000.  So, if you happen to spot a trolley in the water as you stroll along the Grand Union, you can report it here:

The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification was voted in a draw organised by The Bookseller magazine as the oddest book title of the year in 2007. You can read about the wonderful Stray Shopping Cart Identification System here:
