Rubbish in the Recreation Ground

Our maintenance person has advised that on his litter picking rounds he has had to pick up soiled nappies at the Recreation ground.

For the health of those using the Rec, please ensure that soiled nappies are either correctly bagged and put in the bins provided or taken home and put in the bin there.

Thank you
