Roger Davies Band, Roberts Park Bandstand, 3rd September, 2pm

Hello everyone. This Sunday at the Roberts Park Bandstand we have the Roger Davies Band. Roger and his group always put on a good show that is well worth seeing, and we would like to invite you all to attend the performance!

As usual at the Roberts Park bandstand the performance is absolutely free of charge and no tickets are required. At the same time we do take a public collection, and we ask that if you enjoy the show that you make a small voluntary donation to our group. Your donations help to keep the bandstand Summer concerts financially sustainable, and ensure that the Friends of Roberts Park can maintain the bandstand as a free to attend and ticketless event.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all Sunday afternoon!

Attempted arson in Roberts Park shelters.

Hi everyone. I am not wanting to scare people, but please do be aware an incident of attempted arson and aggressive and threatening behavior in the Roberts Park shelters has recently been reported to FoRP. Can I ask that if you are in the park and see any kids messing around in the shelters, underage drinking, cannabis smoking that sort of thing can you please report it to the police via 999?

Its not so much the drinking and smoking that’s our concern here – although that in itself is obviously obnoxious – it’s the culture of teen bravado that goes with it. There have been multiple attempts recently at lighting bonfires upon the shelter park benches in a deliberate and malicious attempt to burn down the park shelters. Left unchallenged these kind of incidents obviously have the potential for serious and long-lasting negative consequences for our shared community spaces. 🙁

If we could all collectively step up as a community and tell these oiks to shove off that would be absolutely wonderful.
