Following feedback from people on the common, we have decided to refine the petition. A lot of people were worried that the council might waste as much money taking fences down as they did putting them up. [e-bay could be an option, although I am not sure what postage would be like on a 964m fence.] Anyway something picked up on as a real worry.
We are therefore going to add that they shouldn’t waste large amounts of money on contractors, and that they reuse or recycle any materials.
I am more than happy to assist for free in taking down any fences.
Two more things :
1. The very nice people at “Just for pets” http://www.justforpets.uk.com opposite the Barnwell Road entrance have agreed to keep a copy of the petition on their shop counter, so that you can do your shopping for your dog/cat/gerbil/goldfish/budgie and sign at the same time. They have a wide range of goods and gifts for all your pet needs ……..[Sponsorship slots are available on this blog by the way ].
2. Some people are having problems with the council’s online consultation timing out or prefer a paper copy. There are forms at the Abbey Pool, but if you want one delivering please ask and we will get you one.
