If you use the park, please could you clean up your mess?

LEICES­TER City Coun­cil have done a won­der­ful job in­stalling new play equip­ment on Sand­field open space in Rushey Mead.

New play equip­ment has been in­stalled, three new benches have been added and a sec­ond much-needed bin. A huge and amaz­ing clean-up of the park took place, lit­ter pick­ing and the mam­moth task of tidy­ing the trees and bushes.

Clean­ing the area has made the park a mag­net for chil­dren, dog walk­ers and many grate­ful res­i­dents. Many of these users can be seen pick­ing up any­thing dropped, it’s given it a sense of com­mu­nity.

So it was quite dis­ap­point­ing that dur­ing re­cent nights fire­works have been let off around the park, not just a few rock­ets, but fire­works on an in­dus­trial scale, I don’t think this much gun­pow­der has been used since Water­loo.

I have no prob­lem with this or fire­works in gen­eral and I am for­tu­nate that my dog, Doris, is not even slightly in­ter­ested in them.

What I do ob­ject to is the amount of rub­bish left, big boxes, cans, bot­tles and all man­ner of party ac­cou­trements scat­tered around the place.

Please use the park, but clean up your mess.

Derek C Good­win, Rushey Mead
