COUNCIL: We must try to restore pride

Have your say

I was interested to read your recent article about bringing life to Spalding in the early evening.

I also read the article about the alleged illegal trading of alcohol and would like to draw your readers’ attention to the condition of the so-called off licence.

I do not know who the councillor is for that ward, but they should visit and walk that area. It is a disgrace. The pavement needs a thorough overhaul, the litter cleared and the area given a general spruce up.

Perhaps a discussion with property owners to improve the appearance of their properties would also help.

The council, however, must first look to its responsibilities. It is sadly failing in this area.

If we can get the rundown areas of this town cleaned and more pride brought back, then we would have a town in which people would be proud to live.

It is very unpleasant to walk that area to Springfields.

Take up the gauntlet please South Holland District Council – and look to your laurels. It would be pertinent to remember “progress through endeavour”.
