Litter louts treat Lincoln village park ‘like a pub’

Barbecues and litter everywhere

A park in the Nettleham village near Lincoln is urging people to stop treating it like a pub as it continues to be plagued by litter.

Mulsanne Park, which is located on Field Close in Nettleham, posted a photo on Facebook of discarded bottles on Wednesday, June 10, saying: “We know pubs reopen soon, but please don’t use Mulsanne Park as one! Respect your park.”

This came after it had already tried to urge people to treat the area with more care.

In another post on Facebook earlier this month, the park said: “Please can we request that all users of the park respect the facilities.

“There has been a lot of litter left recently and even evidence of people lighting barbecues, which is strictly prohibited.”

Nettleham Parish Council told The Lincolnite: “The Parish Council deplore littering anywhere within Nettleham and would ask anyone using Mulsanne Park to take their litter home with them, or deposit it in the litter bins provided.”

West Lindsey District Council said: “The park does have several litter and dog bins which are emptied by WLDC on a weekly basis and all the bins have been collected as scheduled.”
