Attention: Parks & Reserves

Good Morning Parks & Reserves,

Could you please re-instate the climbing roses that have not been replanted and grown against the arbor columns in the Memorial area of the park. Six columns in all are each currently in need of a planting. It's also noted that the ties securing all climbing roses to each and every column are not adequate and break very easily in high winds (a very poor quality twine appears to have been used ). At the same time as the climbing roses are re-instated could all the other climbing roses in the arbor please also be securely tied.

Many thanks & regards

Graeme & Judy Hancox
