There is nothing wrong with The Lawn as it is, so leave it alone. What is this fixation on building a ridiculously small playpark on The Lawn wasting over £100K when 1) we already have a better and bigger playpark at the Manor 2) there are more essential things the money needs to be spent on.
@Diana Mond - Some dog owners do allow there dog's to poop on the beach, so what, it gets cleaned twice a day. Idiots still feed chips to the seagulls. People still feed white bread to ducks, be it near nesting swans or not. People do park on double yellow lines and/or claim they didn't know they had to pay. People, in general, don't use the 'mini' playpark at the Manor, although ...

Needs an independant investigation as to how it was run! This is ratepayer's money being squandered at a time when essential services being cut to the bone and don't get me started about expenses!
A woman had her static caravan stolen from Willand Road, Cullompton between 6pm 22 Nov and 6 am 23 Nov. That was 6 days ago and I have just received this through the Devon and Cornwall ALERT system, yes...6 days ago..not much of an alert more of a 'by the way'. The truck used to take this home had to be quite specific in nature and the experience needed to carry out the theft would require a ...
There needs to be an external investigation into how this playpark fiasco has been dealt with by the local council. The project smells worse than road kill in the summer sun..obviously only my own opinion, writtten without prejudice, e&e.o, etc, etc...no intention was made to hurt anyone's feelings in posting this opinion, no animals, unicorns, trolls, etc were hurt in the making of this opinion.
@Diana Mond - pot, kettle, black comes to mind.
