STINK: Embarrassed our town smells like a drain

Have your say

It surprises me that the stink often pervading much of north Spalding is not front page news in your paper week after week.

I presume it is somehow associated with the sewage works on West Marsh Road because it is strongest closest to their site, but it is frequently evident over a far greater area of the town comprising a hospital, health centre, dental clinic, residential zones, retail stores and outlets, industrial zones including food-handling and processing, and much else.

It is for those who live and work there, and those who represent them, to raise proper concerns on grounds of health, safety and amenity with the appropriate authorities, as I believe they should; I simply travel through the area, but it is enough to make me gag and feel greatly embarrassed that much of our town smells like a drain.
