Pearse Park Clean Up
There has been plenty of work going on in Pearse Park over the past few weeks with tidying up, weeding, brushing and powerwashing so we would like to ask all users of our facilities to try and keep all areas tidy. If there is any rubbish lying please put it in a bin. New bollards have been put in place at the lower side of the turnstiles for the safety of all our members. We would ask that the area in front of the bollards is kept clear in case of emergency.
