Burgess Hill Uncovered office cleaner
reported this morning that she spotted
a number of caravans at Fairfield recreation
Gypos had cut the chain that locks the
gate on Royal George Road, proceeded to
remove the gate completely and move in
When photographing the gate, a truck drove
past at a stupidly dangerous speed and
exited the rececation ground, it was carrying
a load of branches in the back, hmmm.
where did they come from?
There are at least 6 caravans situated
on land inbetween the pond and the children's
playground. The travellers have also set
up some lovely tables with parasols and
some marquee type constructions.
The gypsies were out enjoying the sun
during our visit to the area, every third
word to be heard was either a f*ck or
a c*nt, with the young children being
the worst offenders.
Sadly the caravans are arranged in such
a way that they have monopolised a rather
large area of the field, making it completely
unusable for dog walkers. The children's
playground was full of scabby kids which
would put local parents off from taking
their own children there in fear of catching
a disease from the great unwashed and
of course the danger of the children picking
up on the foul language that spews out
of the mouths of the gypsie kids.
Will Emily White and Mandy Thomas-Atkin,
the wonderful district councilliors for
the Victoria Ward will be heading over
to Fairfield Rec this evening to tell
the Gypsies to move on?
Tuesday 2nd August -
promised, we returned in the wee small
hours to infiltrate the Gypsie's holiday
camp to capture the following images:
They also have a Shetland Pony!!! It
tethered to a tree via a long piece of
rope and was making some rather odd noises.
Sadly it was too dark to get a picture
of it from afar. The flash was not used
in fear of alerting the Gypsies.
We hope to gain
footage of the pony tomorrow.
