Walking my dog in Geraldine Harmsworth Memorial Park I regularly see people apparently injecting themselves with drugs in assorted body parts. They're mostly in the back corner amidst the long grass, where I've also seen needles lying in the grass, but also sometimes in the Peace Garden. The other week my eyes were drawn to someone in the middle of the Peace Garden as they were slapping the back of their hand to draw up a vein, as a lady with a toddler in a pushchair walked past.
The last few times my cousin's walked my dog, he's witnessed the same kind of thing but with the participants half naked, blimey.
I feel a bit puzzled that this is happening in broad daylight in a public place, surely it must be illegal?
Notwithstanding this, and the other thread about the mugging in Tooley Street
, I find Elephant a fantastic place to live!
All the best,
