Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

WHAT you’ve been say­ing on our Face­book page: ●● A huge num­ber of read­ers gave feed­back on our story about the coun­cil’s plans to spend £200,000 on the pond at South Park. Kathy Lambe: Fab news, it’s a lovely park x Emma-louise Gough: Need the park do­ing up too, noth­ing for the younger chil­dren to play on but a swing!!! Winds me up – lovely park and walk but noth­ing for my younger son to play on. Maybe needs new lit­tle one like the one on the We­ston build­ing for the ba­bies. An­thony Royle: Maybe give the park keep­ers more hours to keep the park in good or­der. They do a fan­tas­tic job for the amount of time they are al­lo­cated to be there. Ron Kimpton: I worked on the pond many years ago. We drained it, only to find the silt was 14ft deep down to the pud­dle clay. The big­gest mis­take was re­mov­ing the trees around the pond. When fish­er­men was cast­ing in peo­ple walk­ing past could get caught up with the hook. We took a lot of silt out over a pe­riod of about three weeks but was a waste of time as it just silted up again in no time at all. Phillip Robin­son: About time. Toni Kelly: £200k?? Re­ally?? Julie Pat­ten: GOOD! I walked through other day and it’s look­ing re­ally shabby! Joan Stleger: About time, lovely park. David Heath­cote: We used to swim in there as kids. You could only just pad­dle in it now. I’m glad it’s be­ing done Chris Frame: The carp in there are as tough as old boots 40+ years old. I hope they stock the orig­i­nals back into it once the work has been com­pleted. ●● Last week we re­vealed coun­cil plans to in­tro­duce tough new pow­ers to crack down on street crime at the un­der­pass at Wa­ters Green. Clare Bradley: Needs to be sorted for SURE, another dan­ger­ous area of Mac­cles­field. Rachel Clare: If the coun­cil thinks re­mov­ing graf­fiti, cut­ting back bushes and a few ex­tra lights is go­ing to solve this prob­lem area then Mac­cles­field has no hope at all! Russ Machin: Talk about scare­mon­ger­ing, I’ve walked un­der there loads of times in the day and late at night; I’ve never felt in­tim­i­dated and cer­tainly haven’t been at­tacked! Sharon Pol­lard: Me too, the un­der­pass by Churchill Way is worse! Su­san O’Don­nell French: Great news. Ali Wil­liams: I walk through there alone all the time, never no­ticed any prob­lems, cer­tainly never felt threat­ened... Nas­sar Ahmed: A public or­der, wow, and that’s go­ing to stop who ex­actly do­ing what­ever? Alex Law­ton Truswell Esq: They need to put the road back un­der there. Once you have a lit road with cars pass­ing by then peo­ple won’t hang out there. Paul Moses: I also walk un­der there at all times of the day and night and I’ve never had any trou­ble. Yes, it is nor­mal to find teenagers in that area but I’ve never had a prob­lem. Maybe if there was more for teenagers to do in Mac­cles­field we would not be com­ment­ing on this.
