"A story I was told, which may or may not be true, was that one of the wardens would frequently use his time educating the children but was told to stop doing so by whoever in the Council Office".

Probably 'Elf'n Safety' and "Stranger Danger" issues - can't have people talking to children.
Don't look for the light at the end of the tunnel -  stomp along there and turn the bl**dy thing on yourself!

Childrens' Education Area
« Reply #1 on: July 06, 2019, 07:19:10 PM »
The Childrens’ Education Area is/was a section of Etherow Country Park between the sailing lake and the river and which is now full of felled trees, so no longer fit for purpose.

During the time  when the park had more wardens part of the area had a ring of tree logs arranged to create a story telling area.  A story I was told, which may or may not be true, was that one of the wardens would frequently use his time educating the children but was told to stop doing so by whoever in the Council Office.

Anyway, those trees. During my contact with the Council concerning the fallen tree adjacent to Keg Pool that had taken half the path with it, I suggested all other trees in a similar situation around the pool should be cut down.  In the investigation both the Council Official and the Environment Agency mistook the Keg Pool for the Sailing Lake.

So is it possible the same mistake has happened again and the Childrens’ Education Area has become the unfortunate victim of this misunderstanding, and when will it be returned to its original purpose?
