Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps recently visited Moneyhole Lane park to learn about the  proposal for an automatic barrier designed to reduce  over-night anti social behaviour at the park. He ventured out, along with several residents,  on a very snowy day to hear about the long-standing issues faced by nearby residents. A log is now being compiled of all reported ASB around the park by residents, already there are over 30 entries and climbing. This is being done to prove to the Police and others that there is a problem at Moneyhole, previously it has been claimed that no problem exists.

Friends of Moneyhole thank Grant for taking the time to come and see us. We hope his support  will also inspire our local councillors to make good their intention to support a Community Chest application for this initiative, as was stated at the last FoM meeting.

FoM issued a Press Release outlining the facts and issues around the barrier proposal. That can be can be read HERE.

An article about this also appeared in the Welwyn Times print edition of January 21st.
