Besieged by complaints - one woman whose home is damp and cold said she had ‘screamed and cried ‘to get help – woke to news that Clarion Housing has sacked its heating and hot water repairs contractor for Fenland.
Its construction department was awarded part of a £200 million contract before Christmas by the county council for schools building but in Fenland, Morgan Sindall’s social housing maintenance continues to leave residents without heating.
Wisbech is on track to get a “crucial” new skate park next summer thanks to £35,000 of town council funding – but councillors are hoping the local community will come together to raise thousands still needed.
Hundreds took to social media in Wisbech over the weekend to support a petition calling for a drinking ban in the town, zero tolerance to drunk and disorderly behaviour, a review of licensed premises, and enough resources to police it.
The deputy mayor of Wisbech, who faced calls earlier this week for his resignation, accused critics of orchestrating a “sustained character assassination” and hinted he was unsure if he wanted to remain a councillor.
