Cherry Tree Woods concerns

I have visited Chreey tree Woods with Cllr Alison Moore and a local resident who has raised concerns about the state of the park. The field is still very boggy, and too much so for children to play without getting very dirty. The closure of the kiosk leaves visitors without anywhere to get refreshments as well.

Although the bins had clearly been very recently emptied, we were shown a picture, taken yesterday, of the bins being overflown, with litter piling up on the sides. Clearly this isn't good enough, and we have been pushing all summer for improvements to the service.

It is a beautiful, and much loved park, but we aren't making the best of it, and we will be pressing the Council to make improvements.
