No Soiled Nappies Please!

Over the last week volunteers cleaning the toilets have had to remove soiled nappies from both the baby change facility and the disabled toilets – in spite of signs informing them that we do not have disposal facilities and a request for them to be taken home.

Baby change signA request on Facebook has met with overwhelming support for our stance on this.  Bizarrely two people thought it was OK to leave soiled nappies for volunteers to clear up. Not true.

The very existence of toilets in the park is on a knife-edge and we need the support of everyone to make sure they are treated with respect and remain open. Toilets facilities are key to our park development strategy.

We are NOT the Cafe!

Every month we get dozens of phone calls that should be directed at the cafe. We do not deliver bacon butties or search for your property that may have been left in the cafe.

Cafe (2)Our ‘contact us’ page has the phone number for the cafe so anyone can contact them direct.

We realise there is a Facebook page for the cafe and yes it does give our phone number as theirs – but it’s not correct. There is apparently nothing we can do about the page.
