|Gerry, At Walpole Ward Forum we found out more about the historic fountains in walpole park from two officers Messrs Bunting and Duncan. They'd come to outline the events in Walpole Park in 2013. One was the half marathon. There was some discussion about Tory councillors who were running. I asked if the fountain would be running.|
"No, not until 2014",came the stern reply. You will be surprised Gerry that much money, time and effort had been expelled in making the fountain work to no avail. Pity no one had posted a notice to inform us plebs that all this work had been going on behind the scenes. As for the wildlife. I asked just that question as I understand there is a legal duty to preserve wildlife. The question was met with,"What do you mean?" So we have to assume the ducks flew and the moorhens were eaten by the foxes. Sad.
