Thanks Jack & Zac Saving Potential Injuries!

Tonight I was informed that there was broken bottles all over the play area and the Skate Park on The Ashmore Park. Some body has enjoyed setting a fire , and smashing bottles causing a danger to other children, pedestrians, people walking their pets.

Why do they do it? What pleasure do they get?

With Easter and Good Friday the Park would have been attracting a lot of activity, and the glass was dangerous.

But there is a good news part to this story in here,as well. Two young guys , Jack Weaver and Zack Lewis,,after spending all day at the Hub at Ashmore Park, as part of the team testing for Corona Virus -19, Finished work and then went over the Park with Black Bags and collected as much broken glass that they could find. Indeed they had two black bags full.

I want to thank these two young people, who have shown a magnificent community spirit. The Testing team at Public Health should be hugely proud of both Zack and Jack. I know I am.

There is still a message to parents though. Please be careful at the Park ,as its highly likely there is still some broken glass about.

I will report to the Authorities the situation.

But perhaps readers of this news would also like to thank Jack and Zack too!
