This morning placed in the centre of my desk is very polite apology from a young man who has admitted causing damage to park benches in the open space north of Greenside. He was not the only party who damaged the benches or indeed the party responsible for ripping gates off two play areas but someone who has recognised what he did wrong and taken time to hand write a letter. I will be contacting this young man to see if he and others want to come and help repair damage or undertake other positive activities on the Park. There are instances of damage and vandalism throughout the park and constant issues of dog fouling, litter and fly tipping but to receive an apology for one of the incidents is welcomed. We hope to have more active policing by our own staff and Rangers in the coming months but if you notice any problems please contact the project office via the website.
