Travellers have left KGV Playing Fields

On Saturday 2 September 2017, the travellers who had been camping on the King George V Playing fields have now all departed. They had intended on departing yesterday (Friday), but suffered a puncture so had to return for the night.

The site has been secured to prevent further incursions. The Trustees are looking to implement a more secure solution in the near future.

Unfortunately the Travellers left behind a large amount of rubbish

Some EVRT Trustees and residents were quickly on the site starting the unpleasant job of clearing up the rubbish, collecting altogether about fifty large refuse bags of mixed rubbish, including some excrement, two refrigerators, two picnic tables and a full-size metal bath.
