Letter - Fighting to save Pugneys Country Park again

Share this article

Once again we have to fight to save Pugneys Country Park.

This facility provides a wonderful place to exercise and enjoy the fresh air. My husband and I visit daily for an early morning walk, as do many other people.

It is very well used and enjoyed by all ages and outdoor pursuits are encouraged, yet the council has decided to “sell off” this facility.

The decision seems to have been made without any thought as to how, if sold off, the place would be managed, or if at all.

I strongly support the Friends of Pugneys in their fight to save the “jewel in the crown” of Wakefield.
