DURING the recent unusual warm weather I have taken great delight in strolling in and around Ridley Park in Blyth.
The new cafè there is an absolute great idea and, may I say, a success.
However, I think Northumberland County Council should hang its head in shame at the paved seating area it has installed for the patrons of the cafè.
The (what looks like second hand) mix ‘n’ match materials are nothing less than a hazard, a claim in the making if ever I saw one with trips in the flagstones.
These glazed finished cobbles could be a death trap in the frost, snow and ice.
If this is the standard as a county council we can look forward to then God help us.
It’s nothing short of shameful in a first rate park.
Let us hope that they do the right thing before an elderly person, child or anyone for that matter is hurt and relay the two patios to a standard that is hazard free.
