Long Sutton children reportedly smoking cannabis outside pre-school

More news, no ads


Youngsters are reportedly using cannabis in the vicinity of a town nursery.

Parish councillors have received complaints from Cinder Ash Pre-School regarding kids at Long Sutton’s youth shelter.

Council clerk Karen Treacher said the issue has been reported to police – and she has urged residents who spot the incidents to do the same, rather than posting about them on Facebook.

She added that consistent bad language has also been heard from the school children.

Miss Treacher believes gaps in school hours due to it being exam season have contributed to the problem.

Coun Faith Pearson said: “The school won’t do anything about it as it is outside of school time.”

–At the recent parish council meeting, councillors also discussed the possibility of hosting a free fireworks event in the town.

A business owner in Long Sutton attended the meeting to ask councillors for an update on his application to host the event, saying he has received positive feedback from members of the public.

Councillors said the resident should fill out forms provided and bring them back to their next meeting with further details, but voiced early support of the plans.

–Coun Frank Heinrich-Tiller confirmed that plans to link Long Sutton and Sutton Bridge’s Speed Watch are progressing well.

He said he is trying to find more people to do it as volunteers need to go out in groups of three – and he has also secured the help of a local PCSO officer.

–Councillors clashed with Jack Tyrrell, who represents Long Sutton on South Holland District Council, over a lack of communication between the two bodies.

Coun Heinrich-Tiller has submitted suggestions for ways the town could make use of £2.7million in levelling up cash.

However, clerk Karen Treacher voiced frustrations that the parish council had not been made aware of the funding by the district council directly.

Coun Tyrrell suggested councillors look at the district website – something he said he is told to do to keep up to date with parish council agendas.
