Victoria Park playground shut for Easter hols

Today's Newbury Weekly News reports that the children's play area in Victoria Park will be closed from Monday for six weeks to install new equipment. Newbury Town Council services manager apologised for the inconvenience.

It would be a darn sight less inconvenient if he'd realised that the schools break up for the Easter holidays tomorrow.

Why on earth isn't this being scheduled for term time? It's not rocket science.

  2. Hi, I trust that should you be successfull at the forth coming Newbury local elections, that you will be in a position to prevent such crass stupidity occurring in the future. As for the present, let's hope those concerned can be shamed into delaying the start of works untill after the Easter break, regards, The Shark
