I write in response to an article printed in the April 8 edition of the Boston Standard regarding Witham Way Country Park.
As a regular user of the park I am saddened and dismayed to read of the concerns of some of its visitors.
I walk my dogs on most days of the week in the park. In its defence I say emphatically that I have never felt intimidated or unsafe in any way at all or encountered threatening behaviour in any shape or form.
Witham Way Country Park is a haven for countryside enthusiasts.
Dog walking, family picnics in allotted areas, nature throughout our changing seasons at its absolute best. I feel extremely lucky and privileged that we have such a wonderful place to walk, only one mile from the town centre and maintained mostly by genuine enthusiasts who give their time so willingly for our benefit, we live in a changing world. Rubbish and graffiti are unfortunately part of this change, bins and signs are provided. How nice it would be for everyone if they could be observed and used.
