Pub site cleaned up

RUBBISH and debris from around the former New Angel pub has been cleaned up after intervention from the town mayor.

Coun John Freeman contacted the new owners of the site, national chain JD Wetherspoon, last month complaining about the lack of progress with re-developing the pub and that the place was becoming an eyesore.

As a result the litter has now been cleared and measures put in place to deal with vermin.

Coun Freeman said: “The first letter they ignored, the second was somewhat more abrasive, we got a response and they have cleaned up the site, so that I feel was quite useful.”
