Is there support for raising funds to build a communal BBQ installation in the park? It might deter some people from ruining the grass with their portable barbies. Also very social.

I thinks communal bbqs would a great addition to the park and we should prioritise them for discussion at the next general meeting. I have noticed recently - coincidentally since the posters have gone up asking people not to burn the grass - that people are using bbqs with little legs so they dont damage grass. We have to accept the reality

I think bbqs could should come out of general funds for the park and should not be an alternative to the memorial, we can have both I am sure. its not an either .. or situation and the people putting all the energy into the memorial should not be made to feel defensive about what they are trying to do.

Hi Des, I don't like Rolf Harris! Charming but superficial is my take on him... But BBQs -- that's another matter. I love 'em! But I have several friends who share your distaste, so take comfort -- you are not alone. BTW last night Chris and I did a barbie in our garden for 2 friends. menu as follows: Portobello mushrooms in olive oil, Tamari and Parmesan, Shredded leaf salad with basil and fresh young peas and honey and lemon dressing, Waxy organic new pot8O salad with mint and mayo dressing, Muraray's leek and pork sausages with German mustard, Murray's free range chicken fillets in tikka marinade, broiled slowly, not burned. Pannetone trifle with Cheedar stawberries and cream. Verdiccio white wine. Spicey Australian red wine.

I'm fed up with this barbecue lark. What could be more unpleasant than carcinogenic, particulate-laden, CO2-emitting, obnoxiously smelly fumes being pumped into the air everywhere you go? I'm fed up with being assaulted with the evil-smelling smoke every time I walk on the Downs (like I did today) or even open my flat window. Worst of all, barbecues are such an unimaginative way of spending your time - I really wonder why us Brits find it so irresistible to eat horrible burnt flesh in the middle of summer? Australia has given us many good things in the past - I mean, who doesn't like Rolf Harris? - but the great British Barbecue is one habit we could well do without.

Yours curmudgeonly,
