    This is a very useful website showing how much goes on in Twyford, wonderful.
    As a visitor to Hunter Park today with my grand daughters, I was disappointed to find 2 dogs playing in the children’s play area, dashing across the sandpit. Their owners asked me if my grand daughter was afraid of the dogs and put one dog on a lead. They had no notion that dogs and children’s play areas do not mix. They commented that the dogs come through the fence if they leave them outside.
    May I suggest a Parish Council Notice is put up prohibiting dogs from the area and that the Council put netting between the posts to stop dogs crawling under the railings.

    1. Elizabeth Billingham

      Many thanks for your comments. The council are currently looking into signage within the park as the dog and dog mess problems from a few owners is a concern. I will put your suggestions to the council.
