The Hillside steps have been closed temporarily whilst anti-slip paint is put on them, and the top steps are widened slightly. Chris Gaunt asked if this could be done, as, with the mud and snow it might be a worthwhile precaution against slipping. The steps will be open again, as soon as this is done. Bellway are also looking at widening and laying a more sturdy path from the steps into the Park, as the current small, narrow, track gets very muddy and slippery.
We hope these changes will make the Park more pleasurable to use, and open access to more people.
Our thanks to Mr Oxley’s team at the council for improving the path down to Hillside from the steps; a much better job than the first attempt.
