Reader's Letter: Kicking up stink over rubbish piles

More news, no ads


I wonder how many more times I will have to walk past the stinking load of rubbish the Roaring Meg pub on Barnbygate, Newark, piles up in its outside storage area?

The stench was far worse weeks ago before a lot of the rubbish was removed — perhaps pub staff started to get a whiff of it themselves and couldn’t bear it any more.

But with a lot of the waste still there, including two filthy old mattresses, I have the displeasure of walking past it each day — almost always prompting a gag reflex.

Let’s be honest, it’s not difficult to take your stuff to the dump.

What’s more, staff at the Meg could actually just pay someone do it for them if they really can’t be bothered.

Another thing, why does the pub allow their punters to leave their horses and traps on the double yellows opposite?

They let them poo all over the pavements.

You then have to put up with that smell for a week before the cycle ultimately repeats itself again. — A. MEANWELL, email.
