People in the Queens Park were horrified today as children played on the frozen lake. As you can see above they were walking right across the lake and one was a young child. The Police were called and they rushed to get them off the lake before they fell in. They than took their names and were going around to the parents to advise them of the dangers. This has been happening all week with people of all ages doing these stupid things like smashing the ice they are standing on with bricks bikes etc.
Parent warn your children of the dangers of open water not only of the park. If any had fell in they could be dead very quick if they slipped under the ice and low temperature could prove fatal. If anyone witness this stupid behaviour then call the Police before a child dies. They have been pulling stones off the wall and throwing them onto the ice as well. All the money spent cleaning the lake and its getting full of rubbish.
This leads on to another story this week that the final warden has now been given 6 weeks notice so it would appear that we will have no one protecting our 7m park soon.
Coronation Walk has been cleaned this week by the gardeners and though not perfect its now a usable path at last.
I managed to find some more memorial plaques this week in the bench grave yard so we now have them all. There are some in the office I believe from seats that have gone so I will try and get those so these people can be remembered. If you have any info on the people on these please let us know
