Graffiti Attack……

The latest additions to the park. Cleaned off by our volunteer Steve. More time wasted that could be spent on better things.

Meeting Disrupted by Criminals

 
 
Tonight’s FoSP meeting  was quite an upsetting one – 7.45pm and 3 boys on cycles smashed one of the metal reinforced windows.
 
It was smashed with such force that glass flew across the room! Luckily no one was hit by flying glass.
 
What is more worrying is – this is a communal hall, in an elderly persons complex, with elderly people in bungalows all round. The lights were on, the yobs knew there were people inside – there’s more than a fair chance they could have been the elderly residents. Sickening to think that they might have considered that.
 
So, 3 boys on bikes. Any information to SYP please – incident 829 of 20th October, or in confidence to Crime Stoppers 0800 555 111.

Hedgehogs in Distress


We have some sad/bad news to report.

There have been at least 8 dead hedgehogs in the park over the last week or so.
We don’t believe their deaths have been natural, nor do we believe they have been killed by a fox, badger or dog. We will not be posting details of their apparent injuries or other details as it would be too upsetting for people. We just want to make you aware so that if you see a hedgehog in distress you can perhaps report it?
It is nice to know that there are (or were) so many hedgehogs in the park. Lets hope they go into hibernation soon so that some may survive until next year.
(This is not a photo in the park – merely an illustration of how sweet they are).

Dog Kills Gosling

If you didn’t know already – you do now: Dogs MUST be kept on a lead around the lake areas.

One of the anglers has had to clear up the mess left behind when a dog attacked and killed a gosling. This is just not on. Not nice for children to witness; not nice for the geese parents to witness and definitely not nice for the gosling that was attacked and killed.
KEEP DOGS ON LEADS NEAR THE LAKES AND NEAR ANY WILDFOWL.
It’s not rocket science.

NOTE: Over the years we have been involved with the park we have had FIVE Black swans killed by dogs not on a lead. That is why we no longer have any black swans in the park.

Stay off Fitness and Play areas Please

For those that don’t understand the instruction “Do not use the equipment or playgrounds” – hopefully this message should be loud and clear. Thank you DMBC for helping get the message across.

Rare Griffiti Attack

Friday night saw our first graffiti attack in the last 15 years but the park has always been susceptible to someone having a bad day armed with a can of spray paint.

It is a shame but it is something that we come expect during school holidays
