Cafe Manager Reveals His Sad Prediction for Elsecar Park
Monday October 3 2011
Francis MacDonald has lived in Elsecar Park for four years, as cafe manager and resident. He took on many voluntary responsibilities, like running the golf course and removing cans, smashed bottles, and even condoms, left by youths. He has now been asked to leave the park after he fired a shotgun in the air to scare off youths who - he claims - were destroying a flower bed that had been planted the day before. He talks about what he thinks will happen to the park when he's gone.
