As we all know the park was finished in May and we have been using the new facility since, Than is until the the local ( call them what you like )
decided to have a bonfire on it last weekend destroying it. The local authorities have been notified as the have been a spate of arson attacks in the park over the last few weeks. We believe evidence has been found to whom is behind it. It is not known if the platform is in a safe condition to use until after the investigations are completed but severe repair work will have to take place. We might have to use the Arboretum until repairs are carried out.
