Thanks for the offer, but...

I don’t wish to sound ungrateful to Howard King for his kind offer of land in The Park at Moulton for a play area for the village.

It was clear from some of the very noisy objections being voiced by some who attended a public display of his proposal in the village on Tuesday night that there could be a rocky road ahead.

So I would urge all those with objections and concerns about a play area in The Park to join with me in continuing to knock at the door of the Moulton Harrox Sports and Social Society in an effort to convince it that it can be a real friend to its host village and provide a readily accessible and much more suitable corner of its field, already in use for play and leisure.

It makes sense.
