Concerned at the amount of litter being dropped in the Park, the Friends group have sent a letter to the Headteacher of Cardinal Newman Catholic School (CNCS). FoDRP letter to CNS 13.10.08
We asked him to withdraw permission for Year 11 students to use the Park during school hours, since so many of them are abusing the privilege.
In the past we have tried more positive actions, but we no longer have the time nor inclination to do so. CNCS has plenty of space to accommodate its Year 7 to 11 students during school hours, and in our view that is the appropriate place for them. They should not be allowed to drop litter in our park, leading to our park gardener having to spend hours of his day clearing up after them.
