A COUPLE have complained about a hog roast being left yards from their back garden two days after a cricket club fun day.
James and Jennifer McLean, who live next to the cricket pitch behind The Hamlet in Gallowstree Common, were shocked to find the roast still smoking on the other side of their garden fence on bank holiday Monday.
The leftover meat and a wheelbarrow full of coal were still there the following morning — two days after Kidmore End Cricket Club’s fun day.
Mrs McLean, 64, said she was worried it would attract rats and foxes to the area, which is used by dog walkers.
She said: “There was a fun day on the Sunday — great, we have no problem with that — but we woke up on the Monday morning and couldn’t believe that they had left the hog there. People come on to the land to walk their dogs and let them off their lead and they wouldn’t realise that this had been left around the corner.”
