We took our dogs for a walk within the large land section behind Goose Bay Drive – which is beginning to look very pleasant indeed (or was until the weekend). The pathways and ponds amongst the far reaching space are very appealing and QUVL needs to pat themselves on the back for such an area.
Sadly over the weekend, we viewed local boys (approximately 8 – 12yrs of age) in a small group, dragging and using the large white rectangular safety pillows – used by the developers when workers are high-up within partly built properties, and floating them on the ponds whilst sitting on them (one boy wearing a black gas mask thinking it would provide him with the ability to go under the water)! The pillows remain dumped in the main pond by these children.
We equally noted them destroying two orange flotation devices placed either end of the main pond. The floats were thrown some distance from their stored positions, and the white ropes used for pulling-in anyone who maybe at risk within the ponds were damaged too, and all such new equipment has been made worthless.
We attempted to explain why their actions were not acceptable, but were met with abuse as they simply continued!
The three boys have been viewed previously in our own street as friends of a certain family who have equally been of repeated concern.
QUVL are showing positivity in communal areas for the community – yet whatever is being provided is simply being destroyed within a very short period of time!
