Green Park bench is in need of repair or replacement. The wood is rotting, and not good for sitting on. This bench has been here for so many years, and it is sad to see its decline. Please can you help, would be very much appreciated. Thankyou.

  • This bench is still rotting and quite dangerous. Who’s responsibility is it? Many of my elderly residents use it regularly and I’m worried they may hurt themselves.
