At a time when we are supposed just to walk from our houses for, as suggested, up to an hour a day, why do farmers have to spread chicken waste with the resultant overpowering smell?

This is now preventing us from 'enjoying' a walk and forcing us to take a car journey or stay indoors with the window firmly closed.

Rain can dispel it quicker than dry weather.

As there is little rain forecast for the following week the smell will linger for days!

It has even pervaded the conservatory!

It was not used in the past so surely could have been avoided now.

Local farmers protected in their modern tractor cabins obviously have no thought for others, whilst wanting our support through this crisis.
