Ex-hospital to be demolished

WORK to demolish Spalding’s vandalised Welland Hospital building is due to start on Monday.

United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust wrote to residents to say the site “will be completely cleared of all rubble by Friday, November 4”.

Workmen will be allowed on site from 8am-6pm on weekdays and from 8am to 1pm on Saturdays.

Trust capital projects manager Ron Smith told residents: “Outside of these times, security precautions will be in place. The whole of the demolition site will be fenced off for the duration of the works.”
