Could somebody find out who it was that authorised the cutting back of gorse in the Country Park just as the weather turned the wettest it has been since the beginning of the year. Not satisfied with destroying the habitat of small creatures as they were hunkering down for winter they then employed a tractor with trailer driver who fancied himself as Lewis Hamilton and drove around the Park turning the grass into a slurry pit. Even the disabled walkway is now covered in mud making it dangerous for anybody to walk.

Now that the weather is changing and ice and possibly snow is just around the corner some poor soul is going to slip and fall on what is supposed to be a disabled walkway! The driver of that tractor should never be allowed to drive a vehicle in a public park again. He did not slow down for anybody or to take corners. I have lived here for 36 years and never seen such destruction made by a tractor before!
