Can any­one an­swer square ques­tions?

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

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
