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.
