Victory over ball game ban in local park

Thursday May 14 2015


Ball games now allowed! Ball games now allowed!


A VICTORY over a ban in ball games at a local park could set a precedent across the borough.

Little green signs which say 'BMBC. No ball games. By order' have been in parks and grass areas across the borough for decades - but the ban has been lifted in Wilthorpe park after an appeal by local children who wanted to use it for a kick about.

Old Town councillor Phil Davies said: "I hope it will set a precedent."

Great news (for a change)!
As a kid in the 70's / 80's, I remember having a kick about in this park.
The park keeper at the time wasn't too keen, but left us to it once he knew we weren't causing any trouble or damage.
I'm sure most of the young ones today, will also show respect for their surroundings. But keep a wary eye on future newspaper articles for the few that take advantage and spoil things for the innocents.
