Cardiff coun to destroy Rumney Park

Prior to the Rumney and Llanrumney wards Referendum Feb 17th. ( The
Councils wish to destroy The Historic Rumney Recreational Park inc. of
200 mature trees )

There is a PUBLIC MEETING TUESDAY FEB. 3RD. At 7.30pm The British
Legion, British Legion Drive Rumney, Cardiff

I live in Canton and my family still opposite the park in Rumney.

It was not that long ago I marched alongside Clr.Neil McEnvoy to stop a
roadway from Western Ave - town going through as a link for the Cricket
boss, he is now the gentleman who has voted to destroy the only parkland
in Cardiff East.
Every trick in the book has been pilled by the council........changing
venues/times/dates of meeting with the public.....the Scrutiny Meeting
where told that over 200 residents would be in attendance, so they
booked a small room and tried to block RREELS entry as a matter of
health and safety....but we did gain entry to the meeting in the end.

The residents action group Rreel has and so doing a magnificent job and
has taken the fight to Mr Berman. We started our campaign in the summer
of 2007 and is presently gaining mass momentum with a healthy purse.

I am horrified what I am reading about the threat to Bute Park
