I have come to this site because of the well reasoned and unhectoring signs, posted around the park, they are good clear and I hope will cretae the desired effect.... well done..
But I'm drawn to write ( however badly ) because the widening gap between the youth and those who may on the surface be past it, is getting dangerous. I want to raise a rallying call for communication between the generations, for too long this us and themness has been growing, I won't blithly say once we were there, but I will say they deserve it just as much as we.
I hate the litter, I appour the conspicuous drug use and I'm not to happy about the music. But I love seeing large groups of peeps getting along, Its joyous to see peeps enjoying the sun and lifes bounty so abundantly...isn't it?
hares my point, we should be out there mixing it with the youth, chatting as loudly and jojously as them, eating conspicously as them...but here's the rub clean up after ourselves and others if need be. Please lets lead by example, use positive example rather than kneejerk us and themisms...Busying ourselves as self oppossed litter collectors, bbq advice givers and standing in the balloon cues will deliver more valuble results. Embarrasment is a great motivator, being annoying is a great leveler.
If we love this park we should take it on ourselves to uphold the community we are, vibrant once or still young and open to the changes needed in life to get along with each other.
So obtuse brightly coloured litter pickers needed
Loud embarrasing barbeque advice givers needed
Conspicuous drug ( balloons ) cue, cuers wanted.
So what say you...surely I'm not a lone voice
