A Note from the Thurleigh Environmental Improvment Nework

I recently noticed a nasty smell in the air when I opened the front door. It seemed to be the same sort of smell we encountered when passing the 'Green' Recycling plant at the top of Ravensden hill. I checked the wind direction at the time and it was 5mph from the south east, putting us directly in line with the plant.

I reported this to the Environment Agency this morning. They took my details and said they would pass this on but said they had no other reports in the area. I am wondering how many people actually know who to contact. The EA can be contacted on 0800 807060.
