Parents living in Saxons Heath are being urged to encourage their children to use the new playing field at Acklings or Bodkins to play football and ball games and not gather on the Green. It follows a letter from a resident concerned about the risk to children chasing balls in the road and the safety of drivers. The council is seeking advice from the county council about the possibility of erecting “Not suitable for ball games”
signs. But signs are difficult to enforce and parents are urged to encourage their children to avoid the Green and play ball games at the recognised play areas, Acklings and Bodkins.
