Longer Evenings Bring Fire Hazard

Longer nights bring out the people who like to light ‘camp’ fires in the bottom copse and by the top bench.   This is obviously dangerous and to be discouraged.  The park can get dry, there is a lot of trees and scrub,  and it runs very close to the houses on Bellway.   There was an incident last night,  where local residents had to put out a fire lit by a ‘group of lads’,  who also left debris scattered around.    If you see anything that needs reporting to the Police, then call 101 after an event, or 999 during an event.

We have set up Parkwatch so that if people see such incidents they can send out a quick alert and the matter can be dealt with as appropriately and reported.  If you’d like to join Parkwatch email us on parkinsonspark@gmail.com.   It might stop a serious event occurring that endangers life and property.
