More trouble in the Park last night, with the Fire Brigade called out to extinguish a fire by the top bench. (Which cost the ‘tax’ payer.)
Happened around 10.40pm last night (Sunday 5 Feb 2017). Two ‘adults’ with torches heard and seen going off towards Hillside. The incident has been reported to Police on 999 who have a crime log – any further alert should be reported to them.
The incident was initially reported to the Fire Brigade by people on Nethercliffe who saw the torches and could hear talking – thank you to them for acting quickly.
So, fires, hidden saws, destruction of park facilities, not to mention local schools, football clubs and retail centres. We are therefore, going to set up a Park Watch (like a Neighbourhood Watch) and will have a briefing from the Police this week; we’d like people around the Park and on the lanes leading to it to join.
If we do not, someone is going to get hurt before long, let alone the fact that nothing can be done to improve the Park with this going on. All the places being attacked in Guiseley, and Yeadon has issues too, are public places of enjoyment that are mainly looked after and paid for by local people and public funds. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to become part of the Watch – it is YOUR community, help keep it safe.
