Once there was a ping pong table here
Now you see it….
Now you don’t…
After it had been wrenched off its screws, it kept moving around – for one stupid time it was in the lobby of Dunmore Point where residents were – not surprisingly – not pleased. Then it was to be found at the side of The Hut where kids were playing on it. And then it vanished again. Early last Saturday morning there was no sign of it, not in the playground, nowhere at the back, front or side of The Hut.
Stolen, it seemed.
And then it came back again. People got in touch and reported seeing it at the back of The Hut.
We have a magic ping-pong table with a mind of its own.
But what a shame the rubbish around the playground and The Hut can’t do the same trick.
Right now, it looks really bad. This picture is only the half of it…
How nasty for kids to play here and for any of us to sit out here. So…
….this is an appeal for people to come and help clear up the playground and the sandpit, on this Saturday at 11am. Bring plastic bags, and gloves.
Unlike the ping-pong table, the rubbish isn’t going to move itself.
Finally – come back at 2.30pm for a slice of cake and then the Annual General Meeting of the Gascoigne Neighbourhood Association and hear what we’ve done in the past year.
