Horse manure issue for town

COUNCILLORS discussed the possibility of creating a horse manure collection box after a resident compared the difference in smell between two seaside resorts.

Darrel Blackburn, speaking in the public forum of Skegness Town Council’s full meeting, said while in Yarmouth recently he noticed how ‘nice’ the smell was in the town compared to Skegness.

“Why does Skeg year after year suffer with piles of horse dropping near the sea front - perhaps that’s why the flowers look good.”

The Town Councillor believed the issue should be added to a future town liaison meeting with East Lindsey District Council.
