Meeting over Welwyn Garden City playground trouble spot

FED-UP residents whose lives have been blighted for years by anti-social behaviour are holding a crunch meeting with councillors this weekend.

Householders who live in the shadow of Moneyhole Playing Fields in Panshanger, WGC, will be getting together with their ward councillor Roger Trigg tomorrow to discuss a proposal to erect an electronic barrier at the entrance to the park.

This, residents say, would stop cars from entering the area after dark and consequently help reduce yobbish behaviour such as racing cars and playing loud music late at night.

Other councillors hoping to attend the meeting include Panshanger representative Sara Johnston and Peartree member Louise Lotz.

Residents hope the cash to pay for any barrier can be allocated from the council’s Community Chest.
