Sinn Féin Councillor In Appeal Over Local Play Park

Published: 11 January, 2018


Sinn Féin Councillor Keith Haughian has made an appeal to the local community with regards to North Lurgan Play Park.

Speaking following a local constituent reported an array of broken glass over the weekend he said:

"I was contacted by Darren Maguire today as local residents were concerned by the broken glass in the play area.

"Darren and I cleaned it to the best of our ability and I requested a fuller clean up from council staff the following morning.

"There are a multitude of bins inside the play park so it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that this was deliberate.

"I'm appealing to those involved and to the parents of those involved to desist immediately. A child is going to be left cut or seriously injured if this continues.

"We all make use of this park. Local children deserve to play free from risk of injury."
