Please take care if using the main path through the Queslett Nature Reserve. Some trees are blocking the main path near ther ASDA end due to the weight of snow on them.
You can get around these trees but care will be needed. As ever when there is snow on the ground take great care when using the nature reserve and especially the smaller paths.
I have asked the parks department to take a look at the situation but given the weather conditions across the city it may take some time.

Dog fouling is still a real problem in Oscott. For a time it did look as if dog owner were really getting the message. In fact most good dog owners are. However it is clear there is a stubborn small minority who just will not bag and bin or take home their dogs mess. It is becoming hard to know what to say to these.
Thankfully on the spot fines have gone up for those who are caught however it is difficult to catch some owners in the act as they vary the times they go out and often take their dogs out after dark to avoid detention..
I would ask again these owners think of the danger dog mess can be to young children in particular it is well known that dog mess can carry dangerous diseases. Dog owners should take particular care when their dogs are let off the leash in our open spaces.
Doggy bags cost £1 a roll and can be purchased in many local shops and there are more litter bins on our streets then ever. Many thanks again to the good dog owners it is a great shame a few others are letting you down.
