Welwyn Garden City becomes Smellin’ Garden City!

PUBLISHED: 06:30 14 October 2011




A PUNGENT whiff has been in the air in WGC and surrounding areas in the last few weeks.

Any regular visitor or resident in the town will have the found the stench difficult to avoid.

The onerous odour became too much for one resident, who complained to Welwyn Hatfield Council.

Unsurprisingly the smell was blamed on muckspreading farmers.

A council spokeswoman told the WHT: “There has been one complaint to the council regarding a manure-like smell in Welwyn Garden City, although not specifically in the town centre.

“Having been investigated, this probably linked to muckspreading on nearby farms.”
