Geese have become a nuisance
JUST one look at Lowndes Park today gave a very clear indication that the netting fence (and we assume a planned hedge) is having no effect what so ever on the quantity of geese collecting around the pond or on the surrounding grass.
The only impact is on anyone walking in the park who wishes to walk around the pond, who finds they can only access it at a few points and then have to avoid the quantities of droppings on the pathway.
Equally anyone who attended the recent concerts in the park took their lives in their hands if they chose to sit on the grass again due to droppings.
Perhaps the time has come for some positive actions, forget the wire netting, that hasn’t worked, ban feeding the ducks/geese and fine anyone who does and consider a more permanent means of removing the geese?

THERE are some changes coming to the Bucks Advertiser and Examiner over the next few weeks which means, as usual, we need your help.
On October 1 we will be introducing some changes to improve what we offer you, our readers.
We plan to bring you more pages packed with the news, sport and features from throughout the South Bucks and Chilterns areas.
Last week we introduced new pages for our younger readers. Every week Scoop School will bring you competitions, book reviews and more. Youngsters can become members and submit their own articles, reviews, drawings and photographs and there will be lots of prizes up for grabs for members.
A brand new entertainment guide with forthcoming events from all over Bucks and beyond will replace Life&Leisure.
It will contain information about family events, theatre, galleries, museums, dance, comedy, music and more – a one-stop-shop if you are looking for ideas for things to do.
Our popular columnists and nostalgia pages will not be disappearing though, you will be able to find them in the main section of the newspaper.
We will also be bringing you the big stories from the rest of the county in addition to the news from our area.
Rest assured, this isn’t instead of the local news you currently find in the newspaper, this will be in addition to what’s happening on our doorsteps.
Extended community pages will bring you all the events and happenings from the wide variety of clubs, charities, societies and voluntary organisations throughout our area. And this is where we need your help.
If you run a club or society, are a member of a voluntary group or sports club, we want to hear your news. If you are planning a fundraising coffee morning, a talk from an interesting speaker or to yarn bomb more of Chesham, let us know and we will publish it. Help us to bring you the news and views that are important to our readers. We look forward to hearing from you. subjected to immense suffering.
Head of emergencies for the Red Cross, Ben Webster, said: “People are arriving in Europe with very little – some only a family photo and the clothes they left in. “
“We urgently need supplies such as food, water, nappies and hygiene kits as well as emergency medical treatment – your support can make a huge difference.”
Red Cross volunteers across Europe are working around the clock to support hundreds of thousands of refugees as they attempt to reach safety. To donate, go to: www.redcross.org.uk/ refugeecrisis
