THIS LETTER is in response to the usual rant from Mr Terry Banfield in the South Wales Argus dated August 12 regarding the no cycling signs at the entrance to Pontypool Park. I use the park every single morning to walk my dogs, and yes, I do pick up the mess, and often the litter! I have nearly been hit by cyclists going very fast, as have my dogs. I welcome the ban, well done Torfaen council.

I also would like to know who defaced the signs with anarchist party stickers, they are everywhere in the park. I urge the public to watch out for this vandal who thinks its fine to deface public property and report the offender to the police.

Lyndon Bishop Pontypool
