Liberal Democrat councillor for South Lake ward, Kay Gilder, is pleased that her ongoing campaign to stop Wokingham Borough Council neglecting South Lake, and her calls for the Council to stop the stink coming from the lake is at last paying off for local residents.
Cllr Kay Gilder said “I have been pushing the Council to stop neglecting South Lake and sort out the smell for well over a year now. Finally it seems the Conservatives have realised I am not going to give up on my residents and I am pleased that work to clean up the lake and stop the smell is now starting. Last night at the council meeting I finally got a commitment that work is taking place to clear vegetation from the lake and agreement that in future the council will properly monitor the lake to stop the stink. This is the very least local residents deserve.”
