Save the Queens Park Wardens


I wonder if anyone knows that from June there are no Park Rangers. One sadly passed away a few months ago and there are no plans to replace him, another has already been made redundant and the third retires in June and again there are no plans for a replacement. I also believe that the external security company brought in by the Council to add additional security when the ranger's are off duty has also had the contract cancelled. An open invitation for all the undesirables to wreck all the good work in a very short space of time. I wonder if the Heritage Lottery hierarchy are aware of this. I would have thought that there were conditions attached to the bid that required the Council to commit staff to protect the park!

The wardens carry out many task open and shutting the park, controlling yobs and security, provide first aid, ensure any events have all they need to be able to carry out the event. They keep the park clean report faults and many other functions.

If they go the 6.5million spent will rapidly go down the pan as yobs start wrecking the park. What if you are taken ill or have an accident who will be there to save your life?

Its hard to see how they can be made redundant as someone must perform these task and if anyone does then the Wardens haven’t been made redundant but have suffered wrongful dismissal. To make someone redundant the job most have gone. Its not clear what the intentions are for the Queens Park but there was talk about leaving it open 24/7 while this may work in other posh areas in Crewe it will be wrecked within a week. Why spend 6.5 million to get the park right and then leave it to yobs to wreck.

The cost of the wardens is a drop in the ocean and not great saving are to be achieved by this move. Everyone is up in arms that knows about this and I visit the Queens Park daily and everyone is against loosing the wardens this could be the election big issue.
