Have your say

LONG Sutton Parish Council is looking at a clean-up operation after asbestos cement was used to fill a couple of potholes on the allotments.

Coun Bobbie Ashton reported the matter to the council on Thursday and told members: “We need to look at having that particular hazard removed.”

l Coun Julian Browse said another allotment holder has had suffered a shed break-in and asked members to consider stepping up security.

He said all over the country allotments have high fences around them and allotment holders have keys to gates.

And Coun Ashton said allotment holders should not leave valuables on site.
