Firstly, I don’t know why its called Hillfield Park when it is in Monkspath – I will try to find out why. However, I draw your attention to a petition I have been asked to help with – to get fencing around the children’s play area. The Monkspath Park Users Group voted unanimously at their last meeting to have the fence replaced and I support their pleas. When the last government allocated funds to replace and upgrade children’s play equipment they stipulated that local authorities could not use the funds for items such as fencing. That is a shame and many dog owners feel there should be a fence to make sure children are safe from rogue dogs and to ensure cleanlines
If you wish to support the petition please contact me, preferably via email (even better, posting a response to this post). I hope to present the petition to full council in July. The dog in the image is Skye and is my son’s rescue dog. We look after her every week or so.
