SIR — With reference to your story on goose droppings at Saltaire Cricket Club (T&A, August 20). I am sorry to say it is the whole of the grass area on the river side. I look after my three grandchildren in the school holidays and used to go to the park to play and have a picnic — but since the 40-plus geese have appeared, the whole area is covered in goose droppings. No where to picnic or play without the children picking up droppings on their shoes and on their clothes. People used to sit on the grass by the cafe but now no-one seems to be using that area. The play area is deserted by people normally using that area. It was normally full of people playing with their children and having a picnic.
This must be a health issue. What will happen when the Saltaire Festival takes place this September, as the festival uses the area by the riverside? For the last month I have not taken my grandchildren into the park to play because of the goose droppings.
Come on Bradford Council, please give us our play and picnic area back.
