I am very lucky.

I live in a delightful little Market town

At the foot of the pennines.

It has a lovely little stream running

Through it, rarely more than ten foot across.

It is swarming with fish and

Other wildlife and in its

Upper reaches you can

Find otters.

In the summer many of

The local kids play in it.

It runs a hundred yards from my

House and it is a general delight.

The news that Severn Trent chose to discharge 125 tons of raw sewage into this beautiful stream onlu a few miles upstream from the town was a little surprising.

It is so good to know that those

Who know better than us are so aware of our general welfare.

Well done Severn Trent.
