Clean-up call

Central Leader - - Letters -

I was de­lighted to read that the street-clean­ing or­derly ser­vice is do­ing a great job in keep­ing res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial ar­eas clean and tidy in 25 town cen­tres.

As the project has been so suc­cess­ful it is be­ing ex­tended to in­clude an­other five town cen­tres.

How­ever, I am puz­zled as to why San­dring­ham and Kings­land have been omit­ted from the list of ar­eas to be fur­ther in­cluded.

Some of the fac­tors which helped de­cide which ar­eas would re­ceive th­ese street-clean­ing or­der­lies were “their cur­rent state, cur­rent use and fu­ture plans for the cen­tre”.

The cur­rent state of San­dring­ham leaves much to be de­sired. I have sent pho­to­graphs to lo­cal coun­cil­lor Mark Don­nelly and I have also con­tacted coun­cil of­fi­cers.

Is coun­cil­lor Greg Moyle and his com­mit­tee not aware that in a few years a rather im­por­tant in­ter­na­tional event is oc­cur­ring in San­dring­ham and Kings­land?

Surely this event would have been suf­fi­cient to in­clude th­ese ar­eas into re­ceiv­ing the street­clean­ing or­derly ser­vice, re­gard­less of the fact that res­i­dents, too, would like their res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial streets main­tained and kept clean and tidy. ANNE WILLS San­dring­ham
