Riding of horses / ponies on the King George V Playing Field in Yapton

Over recent weeks it has come to the attention of the Parish Council that one or two horses / ponies, sometimes pulling a cart/trap, have been ridden on the King George V Playing Field. The Parish Council received many complaints about the way that the horses have been ridden on the field, particularly during the Summer Event held on the 11th August.


The Parish Council recently issued the following statement:
