Sadly, despite warnings, the Parish Council have been left with no alternative but to close the Sir Bobby Robson Play Park following inspection on Sunday and this morning. Once again the park has suffered from the removal of signs, vandalism and excessive littering.
This decision has not been taken lightly. Another case of the minority spoiling it for the majority.
The Police, County Council and Parish Council will be looking at what intervention can allow the park to safely reopen.
