Mr Hamon is being a complete and utter embarrassment to himself and his saturday league by choosing to go straight to the press with this complaint & pose for a photo rather then mentioning this to any member of the GXSA during the fully public planning stages over the last year. Choosing sensationalism of common sense. The easy route of complaining to the local paper as opposed to contacting personally the GXSA at any part of the process with this concern. A previous article he asks why he wasn't informed... im afraid Mr Hamon that being the "president" of the saturday league does not make you someone worthy of special treatment, plans were public and open to any concerns long before building started. Were you expecting a personal phone call? perhaps along with the thousands of others who use the park? surely it would be much easier to just put details in the paper and easily accesible online for whom it may concern? surely if you are so serious about the saturday league you would take an ounce of interest in regards to any developments on you sports used sites? no run crying to the local paper when building starts? the park doesn't affect the pitch. And a safety fence is being put up around the perimeter. how about the previous children's climbing apparatus in that area Mr Hamon? surely that was a hazard too? how many injurys were sustained? are saturday league players THAT inaccurate at striking a ball? if so i suggest they take up another sport that doesn't put so many lives at risk. Rod Hamon, your concerns would have been valid and worthy of discussion if you had taken the slightest interest during the planning stages, or had chosen to speak to the GSXA personally before running to the press for a glamour shoot by the goalpost. there are no issues for concern with the layout or location of the skatepark and that has been approved and finalised. if it offends your health and safety standards i suggest you use one of the other football pitches in the island. i think there are 3 on that site. and probably 20 around the island. what a lazy lazy way to go about this.
