With the local elections almost upon us. It is worth considering who will best assist us- the Friends of Dagnam Park, in our continuing campaign for the boundaries of the Manor to be formalised and designated as a Nature Reserve. Over the past two years Don and I have met Head Councillor Roger Ramsey many times to discuss this issue. On each occasion he has stated that the reason for such a delay, is the legal department have a heavy work load and a low staffing level. However after being repeatedly told this for such a long period, the excuse is now wearing very thin. So the new administration, who ever they maybe, will be contacted again for an explanation of their plans for these "redundant fields" as they were described. Will they be built on or formalised as Nature Reserve. Unless we are given an exact date for formalisation, we will have to start another campaign to pursue our objectives.
