Council Strike: Suspended

PHEW! All the effort and loads of volunteers willing to open and clean the toilets…… and the strike is suspended!

Toilets YESOur thanks to the cafe staff who volunteered to open the toilets during the strike period and to all our own volunteers who were willing to put in extra time making sure the loo’s were OK.

We even had people willing to empty the park litter bins – great stuff. Thankyou and well done.

Council Strike: The Park

Not good news: As a result of the industrial action by some council staff over the next ten days litter bins in the park will NOT be emptied and the toilets will NOT be opened.

Bin overflow 20-04-2014We are working on a plan with our volunteers to keep the toilets open if possible. We will keep you updated.

We have no capacity to sort the bins – that’s park life.
