Villagers reduced to tears after travellers leave cricket pitch knee high in human FILTH
The travellers, who also used the club’s water pump during their illegal stay, finally went after being hit with a 48-hour enforcement notice to move on.
“The first few came on Thursday and pitched up at the old orchard,” said Cllr Greenwold.
“Then the next lot came and went onto Seven Star Green just by the church.” An intimidating convoy of 35 vans then moved onto The Heath, near the cricket club.
Cllr Greenwold said an extraordinary meeting of the council, which had to pay a four-figure sum to bailiffs to evict the group, will now be held.
