I don't fully understand where or how the consulation on the "antisocial" behaviour is being conducted, and am only usually around at weekends - I wanted to add a comment but found I could not, so…Continue
Just to remind you that, in addition to the debate on-line here, Kevin Parsons, our beat officer, has asked for feedback about this idea - you can, and should, contact him directly if you want your ideas considered. It is a…"
Can I just correct your use of the term ' wildflower meadow' and clarify what such a meadow is? The area by the pond is indeed a wild flower meadow, and as such has a high proportion of wild grasses growing among the native wild…"
Your pictures are a bit hidden at present, as they can be viewed only in your comment. It is not difficult to post them in the photo area of the website if you want to do so, where more people will see them.
"All sounds pretty grim and I have experienced similar in many parks, and it seems right to look for solutions, but preferably ones that don't penalise the overwhelming majority. These pictures I took last Saturday show the other side I…"
"It's not about wildflower meadows which are obviously brilliant, but about where they are. Re the consultation, I have not received a reply or any feedback, and I also went down to the park on Saturday between 6 and 7 to see if there was some…"

"To correct Ches Chesney, the wildflower meadow near the pond has been one of the park's success stories thanks to Simon and Jo, adding biodiversity to the park by attracting some fabulous invertebrates in the last couple of years. I visit it…"
"Having read the proposals again, I must say I'm concerned by the partisan language used to describe them. It sound very much like the decision has already been made, at least by some...
To demonstrate what I mean and in the spirit of playing…"
"Hello wolfgang and welcome to friends of St.Andrews park. i hope you will find it easier to use our site the more you use it even i am still getting used to it. I am glad that you like the park and have contacted a few members hopefully they can…"
"I agree with you, Wolfgang.
What we have here is an attempt to inhibit anti-social behaviour by inhibiting very social behaviour, too. (Phrases like 'throwing out the baby with the bathwater' and 'cutting off our nose to spite our…"
"I completely endorse the sentiments here. I work and live not on but close to the park so whatever 'antisocial' behaviour goes on is not particularly in my face. However I go there often and more to the point so do my two teenage…"
