The destruction continued this week as the Bowls hut was attacked and all the facia was removed from the windows along with grids and drains. The playing of football on the green is still going on and the gardeners are spending lots of time repairing the green. from next week we are down to only two gardeners in the park.

The vandals continue their reign of destruction here again the bowls hut has been set on fire with only minor damage this time. We have had the illegal fishermen this week with one fetching the family down and fishing near the Tipkinder end right next to the path nearly catching a baby when he cast his line out. He also left his line in when the swans swam past some thing a decant fisher man wouldnt do. The Police have been called but are reluctant to do anything when asked to speak to kids on bikes on the bowling green they didnt want to know.

Bowling Hut

 
DSCF5449

Once again the Bowling hut has come under attack from vandals as they tried to smash the doors down this week. The window is broken and the door locks were also broken as they tried to force the door open. Today there was  tar on the windows. If anyone sees anything Dial 101 and report it straight away while there is still a park standing

bowling

It was raining in the park so we sheltered under the bowling hut you have to remember this is a £650,000 hut not a shed from the market. Look at the 4 photos put into one the windows have a big gap under them the wood is splitting like nothing on earth not just little cracks but big uns all over. It not been up that long next time you go take a close look the joins in the wood ar eigdy pigly a kid at school could make better joints. At this rate it will fall down in a short time. if it was a shed you would take it back for a refund. The reason the kids could shack the door is because the bolt hole is to sizes to big so it has lots of play in it. The good old bowlers left it open last night as they couldnt get the door shut Well Done lads

The bowling Hut as it was and the much talked about £500,000 new hut which people are complaining about as now you cant play bowls anymore originally you could hire woods very cheap to encourage new users but now its members only and people are saying its a lot of money for a few members

Going Going Gone

qp 003

The bowling Green above and the cafe are the next things to be renovated. The Cafe has been fenced off ready and demolition will start Wednesday/Thursday this week. They will have to start work early and work late as they cant bring any lorries into the park during the day so they have to fetch everything in before 9 oclock

 

DSCF1307

The work on the Bowling Green has started and its soon been knocked down all that is left is a pile of rubbish . The Bowling green is till open so people can still play

DSCF1317

The cafe should have been knocked down this week but has been delayed as they had to check the roof for Bats before they could knock it down. Its hopped the work will start next week
