Update on Wellington Avenue play area

 Message from Nigel Lawrence, Borough Councillor regarding the play area on Wellington Avenue:

I have being conducting a small inquiry into this story, and investigating what actually did happen.

The most mysterious thing is where this rumour originated. As far as I can establish they never was any fouling of the play area, so who started the story. I first heard it as “they have been urinating on the play equipment”. Next I heard it expanded to “using the play area as a toilet”. Where the story about needles came from I know not.

The facts I have been able to establish are:

1.       Soon after the caravans were reported a borough officer attended, delivered wheeled bins and black bags and checked round. I have spoken to him and he had looked at the play area and noticed nothing out of order.

2.       When Streetwise did the clean-up after the vans left they found some human excrement in the nearby bushes which they removed but no sign of needles. They treated the area around the bushes to sanitize them (standard practice when cleaning up after such an event). Whilst they had not been commissioned to clean the play area (which they thought was odd) they inspected it but found no waste, contamination or damage.

3.       The rumours got louder & louder so a group of Parish Councillors went and sanitized the area themselves – many thanks to them. They found no signs of contamination or needles.

4.       There is at least one resident now demanding chapter and verse over the removal of contamination which was never there in the first place!

I hope that this evidence will convince you all that we have no problem. However this rumour is still loose and is seriously damaging to Newton and you, as the PC. 

Please will you all do your best to get the word round that the play area is clean and safely usable. You may post this note on the noticeboard if you wish.
