VANDALS CAN BE PUTTING PEOPLES LIVES IN DANGER IN THE QUESLETT NATURE RESERVE
Sadly vandals are potentially putting visitors to the Queslett Nature Reserves, lives in danger.
The lake in the reserve although it is strictly not for swimming or paddling in (as the water is not treated,) can tempt some youngsters to swim in it during rare periods of hot weather.
The lake has a swimming float near by in case one of these swimmers does get into difficulty but sadly vandals are constantly unable to resist the urge to throw these flotation rings into the lake.
These rings are expensive, for legal reasons need to be in place and are difficult to retrieve once in they are in the lake.
It may only be a matter of time when a ring missing from its poll near the lake causes a major problem where a swimmer in difficult cannot be rescued.
THE PARKE'S DEPARTMENT OFTEN FIND IT DIFFICULT TO REPLACE RINGS QUICKLY ENOUGH
Please do not throw rings into the lake and do not swim in the lake IT IS MEANT FOR WILD LIFE ONLY
