HAD the judging of Wisbech in Bloom been a week or so later - and had they ventured a short walk from the town centre- this is the sight that would have greeted them.
The photographs were taken today (Tue) by Wisbech Standard photographer Brian Purdy at the Elm Road retail park that houses B&Q as well as the fire damaged Co-op Rainbow store (now being re built).
All manner of rubbish - including a discarded supermarket trolley- has been strewn in and around the recycling bins on the site.
The Standard was alerted to the piled up rubbish by a man who said he worked for the council - but refused to say whether he worked for Fenland Council or West Norfolk Council, the latter council who look after that part of Wisbech.

Anglia Co-op says they have complained to the site landlords, Legal and General, whose agents, King Sturge, say they are contacting the individual firms responsible for the recycling containers.
The council say it would clear up the site if asked, even though it is on private land.
