Kids will be kids - and over the last few months - some of them have been using the wooden supports of the iron fence to help climb the tree. Well - it has finally broken - with the result that the fence is falling down.
Already 2 pedestrians have written to me having bashed their heads on the very sharp metal sticking out. I have referred them to the council. Each day the fence tips a bit lower onto the sidewalk. - so there will be more.
I have spoken to PMMS about this a few times - and Derek says that it's not PMMS's responsibility. But Hamilton King are also claiming they are not responsible.
My advice to any parents who have an injured child in the next few months - is to get the council to sort out the insurance costs between Hamilton King or PMMS. The council after all is responsible for the sidewalk - and that's where your child will fall.
In the meantime - if anyone in the Hamilton King block knows any friendly contacts in their management company - please get them onto this very serious accident waiting to happen.
