Stream needs urgent clean-out

We moved to Lewes 12 years ago from Oxford, and very much enjoyed the walk into Lewes from our house via the Winterbourne and Rotten Roads, along the Winterbourne stream.

With grandchildren sometimes in tow, there was much to see along the stream.

However, sad to say this is not the case now. The stream is a real mess and needs clearing out – certainly before possible heavy rains this winter.

Can we appeal through your columns for some action to remove the weeds and general debris, which has accumulated in the streambed?
