Children climbing on war memorial

Is this really what we are going to have to put up with? Adults and children climbing on the war memorial -what happened to respect?

So much money has been spent on updating The Strand, lots of extra seating, but people still feel the need to climb all over our memorial.

I think it is totally disgraceful and, as for hearing that there is talk of fencing it off, why?

It has never needed it before; it’s such a vast open space now, but with nothing for the children to do.

Where is the grass they used to be able to play on?
