LETTER: Care for ‘jewel in the crown’

I am writing to express my concerns through your columns about the current state of maintenance of Horsham Park.

Local residents rightly consider that the park is ‘the jewel in the crown’ of Horsham. Sadly, the jewel is in a tarnished state with many hedges overgrown with brambles and weeds, including nettles. This presents a hazard to pedestrians, wheelchair and scooter users and families with pushchairs. It is sad to see the park in such a poor state of maintenance.

I understand the maintenance of the park has been outsourced to a private company. Please HDC bring the maintenance of the park back to ‘in-house’ employees, who have the knowledge and skills required for the task.
