Please support our Spacehive funding campaign for fox proof litter bins at Mountsfield Park. We want to make Mountsfield Park more welcoming and beautiful. Unfortunately foxes empty our old open style bins at night making Mountsfield Park untidy and unwelcoming. The Mountsfield Park urban foxes are naturally curious creatures, they investigate the bins looking for junk food and used nappies to use in their dens; unfortunately they don’t clear up after themselves. This means that in a public place, that only has the services of a park-keeper two days per week, litter, old food and bags of dog poo can be left strewn across the grass. This is not only unsightly but also a health hazard, especially to small children and also pet dogs.

It’s Jon Hooker’s last day tomorrow, Mon 30th March, as our park keeper. We haven’t been offered a full time replacement but have been offered the Manor House Gardens park keeper 2 days per week on Monday and Friday.
We think that we definitely need a full time park keeper at Mountsfield Park for all sorts of reasons, but would like to hear from park users what they think?
