Quads in Holmhills again

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

Quad bik­ers are again caus­ing prob­lems for users of Holmhills Park.

In May we re­ported that bik­ers were po­ten­tially putting young chil­dren in dan­ger and be­ing abu­sive to peo­ple who asked them to leave.

And it seems the prob­lem has not gone away, with the is­sue be­ing raised at a meet­ing of the Friends of Holmhills Park group last Thurs­day.

The group posted on their Face­book page: “This time they’ve been heard and seen, reg­u­larly [over] the last few weeks, be­hind Cathkin High on the grass pitches and sur­round­ing area.

“Re­mem­ber this is a dan­ger­ous ac­tiv­ity and can be re­ported to the po­lice on 101, just give lo­ca­tion and de­scrip­tion if you can.

“We would like to de­velop a his­tory of this is­sue with po­lice so they can see a pat­tern and keep it on their radar. Also feel free to lets us know through this page if you have seen any.

“Off road bikes are fright­en­ing to chil­dren and an­i­mals and are not suited for use in a park or res­i­den­tial area.”

Un­der cur­rent rules, a li­cence is not needed to ride a quad bike off road.
