The power of the internet. In the past I would have been knocking on doors to see if anyone or knew of anyone who was missing a cat. I would never ever go to the RSPCA as years ago when I found a kitten they told me to take it up the road and loose it.

I have an allotment at Bobbits Lane and they are there every weekend. We have watched police go up to the field this summer but not very often. I will keep a note and inform Environmental Health. The more people that do this the better though.
Wendy W

Camping equipment is almost part of the fishing life, and it doesn't have to be expensive, a basic tent costs around £50😉 I actually used to fish the lake regularly, but the anti social behaviour from some people, not just anglers, but dog walkers as ... [ more ]

Nick G - I feel it is an unfair statement to say the 'park rangers care little about the park'.   I honestly feel that they are not being listened to by their employers (due to cuts) and so morale becomes low, that in turn causes for enthusiasm to ... [ more ]
