Durham County Council who provide all our grass cutting through a SLA have arrived on site this morning to start works. This was thanks to our Clerk chasing this up over the last few weeks and not the debate on social media platforms. Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 situation grounds maintenance staff had been redeployed to other areas in the county. This was a county level decision.
However on arrival this morning it has been discovered that the lock has been damaged. This is the 3rd lock that has been deliberately tampered with resulting in further delay. This is unacceptable and yet another lock that will need to be replaced.
We would ask that anyone living near The Old Recreation Ground and our parks to please be vigilant, reporting anything directly to the parish council.
