Fruit Picking at the Community Orchard
The Community Orchard on Franklin Park will be open to the public over the Bank Holiday weekend, Saturday 29th - 31st August, 10am - 4pm for fruit picking. There is an abundance of fresh fruit ready for picking including blackberries, apples and damsons. For the remainder of the week ( 1st to 4th September) the Community Orchard will be open 9am - 3pm.
Theft of Children's Play Equipment - Appeal for information
POLICE are appealing for any information and sightings which would help catch thieves who stole two slides and three swings from the Town's Parks.
Over the weekend of Friday 12th - Monday 15th June, a slide and three swings were removed from the children's playground at Mossdale Meadows and a slide was removed from the children's playground at Franklin Park. There was no official Town Council activity on the parks over the weekend.
The thieves made off with the equipment leaving it unsafe, with rough edges and a parent telephoned the Council on Monday to inform us that her daughter had climbed the climbing frame to use the slide and nearly fell over the end, since there was no barrier where the slide had been to prevent any fall. Had it not been for her quick reaction in catching her, a little girl could have been seriously injured.
If you saw any activity, which may help in identifying the culprits, even if it at first appeared to be normal, please contact Leicestershire Police on 101 with the information.
