Save the Park Keeper

After spending hundreds of thousands on refurbishing Abbotts Park the Council is now getting rid of the park keeper.

Abbotts Park area is known for crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB) but residents believe that the three CCTV cameras planned cannot replace the park keeper and reduce ASB.

Residents say that the park keeper is vital in keeping the park a clean, tidy and safe place for people and families to meet and play.

Liberal Democrat Focus Team member Dave Sherwood said, "Getting rid of the park keeper after 20 years of service is a cheap budget cut which the Council needs to review."
