Sandall Park Mystery…..

OK – calling all Super Sleuths…… see if you can come up with a theory on this one.

The facts:

20160129_1747171. Yesterday we recovered more than 100 spirit bottle security tags (the type that needs a machine to be removed) dumped in the park – mostly in plastic Morrisons carrier bags. They looked new – but several were slightly damaged and there was a slight whiff of intoxicants.
2. The location was on the old golf course – near to the layby on Barnby Dun Road – at the end where the houses are.
3. About 11pm last night persons with torches were seen in the same area – as was a transit type vehicle (of course may not be connected).

The found property has been reported to the police – but we would be interested in theories as to where the security tags actually came from.

Keep Off The Ice!

Someone somewhere will die by falling through the ice on a park lake in the coming weeks. It happens every year. DON’T LET IT BE HERE!

CIMG6601The lake is currently half frozen over and experience tells us that this is the most dangerous time – when dogs chase the wildlife and….. well, you get the picture. We’ve been here before – many times.

Please keep your dogs on a lead and your kids off the ice.
