Yet again it is disappointing to see a large amount of litter being left all around the Skatepark. We know there is an ongoing debate as to why our Skatepark is closed.  We would like to remind you that we are in a pandemic and during this pandemic we are required to follow recommended guidance which is that the Skatepark should close.  Yet we still are faced daily with copious amounts of litter and smashed glass left around the grounds of the skatepark.

This isn’t the first time we have put up a post regarding the amount of litter being dumped and left around Wadebridge Parks, Car Parks and the Skatepark.  Our bins get emptied on a regular basis and if, for any reason, they are full is it too difficult to use another bin or take it home with you?

Dropping your litter on the ground and smashing glass while expecting others to clean up after you is unacceptable and disrespectful.  Please show some respect to Town Council staff who, regardless of a pandemic, shouldn't have to spend hours clearing up the mess of others who appear to have no regard for other users of the Skatepark, our Community or the Skatepark itself.

The Skatepark remains closed.  However, if you witness any COVID-19 breaches, including misuse of the skatepark, please report your concerns to Devon & Cornwall Police rather than contacting the Town Council offices. This then ensures that crime is logged in the correct manner and Police Officers can attend.
