Can anyone answer square questions?
FURTHER to my letter printed in The ET on June 14, I read with interest the companion letter from a Ramsey resident.
Could someone a) get the council to confirm that a risk assessment on the cleanliness of the water in the fountains has been done if children are playing in it and how often is it checked. Who knows what goes on in the early hours of the morning when clubs are turning out, and b) ensure that anyone wanting to sit on the benches is allowed to move towels, pushchairs and lunchboxes to sit down – this is not a play park and people are more important.
And finally. . . last I heard, Cathedral Square was a public thoroughfare and has been for centuries and so if parents are letting children run around the square using the fountains as a paddling pool I assume the parents are responsible for any upset the children cause by running into elderly people, causing a nuisance etc?
Is the council insured if children hurt themselves in these fountains and on any litter\glass dropped on the square and if the fountains are allowed to be used as a paddling pool shouldn’t there be fences round them and relevant notices?
By the way, has anyone from Peterborough Festival answered the First World War tank question? MARION BROWN Mildmay Road, Peterborough
