With this gorgeous weather people are coming from all over to meet each other while their children play.
With all the flowers and pottery, the park is looking great and people are understandingly using it more and more.
People are coming here from Croftlands, South Ulverston and even Dalton and Backbarrow.
Yet the SLDC Parks Department have chosen to remove one of the picnic tables, we are told, for repairs to one leg.
We appreciate their involvement but it is now a whole week since it was taken away and our enquiries yesterday and today have so far failed to determine when the table will be returned.
Although appreciative of their involvement in repairing the table, we are very capable of promptly doing all repairs ourselves since we made it with new materials we supplied in the first place.
We would far prefer the Parks Department focused on repairs they said they would help us with two years ago.
One is the bench that has had missing seat bars all this time. Eighteen months ago SLDC said that they would provide the wood to repair it, if they couldn't do the work themselves.
Even more important is for a satisfactory way of closing one of the gates to be implemented. The one in question uses a weak latch which vandals have broken twice in the past two years. Could the SLDC not replace this with a loop similar to the one they placed on the other gate last year?
This has been a great success.
The BUGs, a group of local people the have put a lot of work into improving the park. They hope that their efforts are recognised so that greater cooperation between them and SLDC develops during these times of limited resources.
The BUGS believe they are doing their part in not only improving the park but in keeping it tidy thus minimising work for SLDC contractors.
Could we have some consideration in return?
As soon as we get more information we'll post the outcome here.
