VISITOR INFORMATION: Care around the deer.
The deer at Bradgate Park are wild and our protected by our Bye-laws as well as wildlife legislation.
Visitors need to treat these wild animals with respect. Please do not approach animals to try and stroke them.
Do not feed the deer at Bradgate Park.
All visitors, including visiting photographers and those with mobile phones are asked to help safeguard the future of the deer by following a few basic rules:
• Distance – do not get closer than 30 metres to the deer
• Disturbance - if the deer are lying down it is a good indication they are ruminating, which is part of the deer's digestion process. Try not to make the deer move as this upsets their digestion.
• Pursuit - if the deer start to move away it is because they feel threatened. Please do not follow them as this causes stress similar to being chased. Whilst we have publicised dog chasing deer, visitors have also started to pursue animals and this is not acceptable.
• Surrounding- please do not try to photograph from all side this hems the deer in leaving them no room for manoeuvre and resulting in a high level of stress, comparable with being chased by a dog
Bradgate Park is famous for the deer - please treat them with respect when visiting.
They can be dangerous as they are wild and therefore unpredictable.

Safety Issues on Bob Bown Playing Field

Safety Issues on Bob Bown Playing Field

Posted: Fri, 29 Mar 2019 14:44 by Pam McMorran - Site Administrator

You may remember that last year we were forced to remove an item of equipment from the play area due to inappropriate and dangerous use, with rope and other such items being tied to it. Since its removal the situation had improved sufficiently that we were considering its reinstatement. However, it is with regret that this month our councillors found yet more blue nylon rope tied to equipment on the field- presumably from the same source as before….. This has now been removed as it is an entanglement hazard. More »

It is totally unacceptable that the safety of our equipment is compromised in this manner. The equipment is inspected weekly which, when used normally, is sufficient. However, we do not have the resources to keep checking that no-one has been irresponsible enough to endanger others by attaching these ropes etc. Please, if anyone sees such occurrences let our Parish Clerk know as soon as possible so that the danger can be addressed. If you know who may be responsible for this rope we should also like to know so that measures can be taken to stop this happening.

Everyone's children should have the right to play on this facility in a safe environment, no-one should have the right to compromise their safety.

Written by the Chair on behalf of the Parish Council
