I have been alerted by my friends who play bike polo every Wednesday in Newington Gardens
that the council have turned off the lights to the playing courts permanently due to ‘safety issues'.
Safety issues. Are you kidding me! I walk through that park each evening and now winter is approaching, the thought of walking through in the dark fills me with fear.
Surely the lights are not just good for people playing on the courts, but also encourage use of the rest of the park through winter.
I'd love to know how much the council spent on this facility and I know they improved the rest of the park only last year. What a waste!
