Crosby Labour campaigner tackles crazy golfers issue

Labour's Manor Ward candidate Diane Roberts on the green at Oaklands Drive


Tee'd off Crosby residents have turned to Crosby Labour Action Team to tackle crazy golfers on a residential estate.

Crosby Labour Action Team leader Diane Roberts, Labour's candidate for Manor Ward at May's local elections, has been contacted by residents on and around Oaklands Avenue who say rogue golfers are putting lives and property at risk.

They report broken windows and further damage to houses and cars as a result of over-hit golf balls.

Diane has written to local police asking them to monitor the situation.

Diane said: "These golfers really are playing with people's lives. We've been told about golf balls smashing windows and bouncing across the roads.

"It only takes someone being hit by a golf ball or a ball smashing a car windscreen causing a crash.

"These people really do need to see sense and realise how dangerous and irresponsible their actions are."

Diane said she witnessed people playing golf on the green during a site visit.

Diane said: "When I went along to speak t some of the residents, I saw people playing golf myself. And these weren't children, they were fully grown men in their 30s who really should know better.

"Despite there being a clear sign saying 'no golf', these people are blatantly persisting. The green just isn't big enough for that activity.

"So I have contacted Crosby Neighbourhood Police to report the concerns and also to tell them what I saw.

"We will hopefully get this problem under control before someone is seriously hurt."
