And finally… No balls please

And finally... No balls please

Stirling Council has submitted an application to the authority’s planners to install a 16-foot high fence to stop balls landing in a community garden.

The local authority wants to erect a five-metre high ‘ball stop netting/fencing’ between Braehead football pitches and Braehead Community Gardens.

The garden opened in 2015 thanks to a £250,000 lottery grant. The 11,000 square metre site with 100 raised beds available to hire allows local people to grow fresh fruit and vegetables in a facility that was previously crowned the ‘Best Community Space in the UK’ by the Society of Garden Designers.

The fencing would be finished in a muted green colour.
