A female resident came out as we were filming the departure of the many caravans at Eastbury Road, Oxhey.
The video shows them coming onto the road leaving the green, but left behind boxes of rubbish.
Suddenly I hear shouting, it is a woman who lives opposite who is very angry at the travellers leaving their rubbish as usual.
A small clear up was needed and our partners Veolia have restored the area to its previous state.
The day before Police emailed neighborhood watch members :
Dear Watch Member,
Please note that Police are aware that vehicles and caravans have arrived at the park /recreational fields on Eastbury road which is located within the Oxhey ward of Watford.
Police are currently liaising with local council officials with regards to enforcement notices being issued to the vehicles. Police will be on patrol in the area and will monitor the situation carefully whilst offering reassurance to local residents and deal, were appropriate with any issues raised.
Your patience and cooperation will be greatly appreciated at this time and as usual please report and problems using the Police 101 non-Emergency number or in an Emergency 999.
Oxhey ward cllr Peter Taylor said: “There have been big improvements in Oxhey Park in recent years.
“It got the highest mark out of the town's eight green flag parks this year. We can't allow it to be spoilt in this way and will be taking action to prevent it happening again.”
Cllr Taylor said the council is deciding on the type of barrier or fence to use. So far, around 250 residents have taken part in the consultation.
Thanks for stopping by. We welcome your comments.
