Hi Emma,

We have not received any info on this so far. Perhaps if anyone out there knows the answer, they can post it, or let me know and I'll post it.

Hi,
Thanks. No I am not organising anything, sorry. I was just trying to find out when the Christmas carols in the park were happening. Sorry for any confusion.

Hi Regina, 

Thanks for the comment. It would be great to come to your next meeting. I live on Sefton Park Road, and am running a honeybee social enterprise, called Bee the Change and would be great to chat to you about potentially working with the community to encourage more people into keeping bees! Especially with that wonderful wildflower meadow :) There is lots of funding at the moment from the Green Capital fund, so perhaps we could improve the park even more. 

It would be great if you could let me know when the meeting is. 

Thanks, Heather

Hi Regina, thank you for letting me join the Friends of St.Andrews Park. Sorry its taken me so long to reply. My Sister Janet and her husband Jeremy lived on Leopold Road in the 1970s/80s. I viisted occasionally and often walked the park and found it am oasis of calm in the middle of the big city. I will see if i can find any old photos i can add. I stumbled across your lovely website by chance and am very pleased i did. I enjoy reading peoples postings. Steve

Kind regards,

Matt

Although I don't condone the use of an illegal drug in public places, does cannabis smoke really pose a passive smoking health risk? I very much doubt it.

   I’m sorry to hear of the problem that you had with the cannabis smoke on Monday.  Unfortunately it seems to be an all too common problem in the park and elsewhere.

   Over the last two years, FoSAP have organised two public meetings with the police, local councillors and council officials and a further ten or so smaller meetings with them, to discuss ASB.  I would place the incident that you had under this heading.  Our local beat manager, PC Kevin Parsons, is very much aware of the problem of drugs being used in the park.  He undertakes plain clothes patrols as did his predecessor, Alex Owen, and they have been successful in arresting offenders on a couple of occasions.  As you may know, Kevin has proposed an initiative to create flower meadows in the park with the idea of reducing the number of people using the field parallel to Leopold road.  We are still awaiting confirmation of funding for next year, but in the meantime the Parks dept is leaving un-mown areas in the field to deter people from congregating there.  

               There is also an ongoing consultation process to create a set of By-laws for parks to prevent ASB, which the council is running.  Although this may take a very long time to establish new By-laws, they will give the police new powers in parks which they don’t have at the moment and hopefully make the area less attractive to people who cause ASB.  They do of course already though have powers of arrest for cannabis possession.

               If you would like to contact PC Parsons, please phone the non-emergency police line on 101 and when you are put through to an operator, just ask to speak to him and give his shoulder tag number which is 1414.  He is very approachable and friendly.   I will mention the incident to him when I’m next in contact.  I’m sure that he will suggest that you contact him with details if it happens again.

All the best,

John

Dear JOHN and all at  Fosap,

Whilst I do not know everyones views on this subject I would like to report something I found extremely upsetting for several reasons: On Monday 8TH July around 6pm ish I was walking through the leopold rd /Effingham road when my lungs were assulted by a cloud of Canabis smoke  (I only know this as when I  encountered some before a collegue told me what itwas) this is becoming increasingly common in the Ashley down /st andrews area ( In fact on routes to Broadmead/ The Centre too) a definate hazard for any pedestrian.

The 20 -30 something male was good enough to move away when I started to choke on it. Why  am I CONCERNED YOU MIGHT ASK? Besides the fact that I am awaiting the 5 yr all clear from Breast Cancer in 2015. It has been scientifically proven to increase anyones but especially those more suseptible to it risk of getting  cancer by 500 times! Whoknows how many visitors to our park are  at risk from this stuff..I despite some modern trends do not wish such a dangerous substance smoked anywhere in our area especially our park where one comes to enjoy hopefully FRESH AIR.

Besides this real risk it is not the sort of thing to be encouraged and I feel FOSAP as could many other organizations  nowadays could and should set an example of sensible thoughtful  decent behaviour.

Is there anything  fosap can do about this such as ask for more police presence in our park or  a few notices or bylaws put up to say what is permissable exclude drug use!

 

Yours Sincerely

Regina Zdrojkowska

My dad (Fred Davies) was a member of the St Andrews Park Bowling Club for many years.  I don't have any direct contact detail for the club, so I'd like to mention that we have his bowls set in a nice case and would like somebody to have them (I'll need to check with my mum whether she wants to give or to sell!).  Please mention this to anyone who might be interested.
