Outside Sutton St James Baptist Church

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 16:23, Sat 31 December 2022

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 441553.

The drain in the road is blocked so that when it rains an enormous puddle collects that covers one side of the road which results in the front of the building and anyone entering or leaving being sprayed by motorists going through it. We are open every week day and many elderly people come for a cuppa so they can't leap out of the way. Thank you

  • 16/2/24 - this problem is still very much unresolved. The drain itself is totally blocked with leaves and other debris which is not helping the draining problem, however even when it has previously been cleaned the large puddle still appears and causes problems for our elderly and infirm guests.
