THIS WEEKEND’S big LIME King Of The Hill racing meet has struck a sour note with some residents in St Thomas.

While parliamentary representative Cynthia Forde does not have a problem with the event and thinks that “racing must happen”, she is expressing her displeasure at some of the “wrongs” being meted out to poor people, and the people in St Thomas in particular.

At the centre of her displeasure is the recent preparation for the motoring event that has reportedly seen a “massive” depression in the area close to the Vaucluse circuit being filled it.

Speaking to the SATURDAY SUN last night, Forde said she was “startled” when she was driving through the area on Thursday and saw heavy-duty vehicles from two well-known businesses dumping soil into the “pond” that would collect water during heavy rains and help to prevent flooding in the area of Hangman’s Hill.
