A site in the hamlet of Thorpe Acre, near Loughborough, Leicestershire, created to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee will have to be protected by bollards in order to prevent motorists from parking over it, a news report in the local media has revealed.
June Bush and Roy Campsall of the Thorpe Acre Residents Association (TARA) say people using The Ville Shopping Centre off Wordsworth Road are parking on and breaking the slabs that surround a tree planted in Her Majesty’s honour in 2012.
Mr. Roy Campsall, vice chairman of TARA, added: “We’ve got to raise some money now to put it right.
“We have thought about putting some bollards up to stop people parking on it.”
