Letter: Disappointed in the summer beach

Have your say

Just a quick letter to express my disappointment at the new Summer Beach at Sykes Lane Visitor Centre Rutland Water.

After reading the article featured in the Rutland Mercury, (which was sent to me by a friend), I and a friend took two children an hour’s journey, picnic, buckets and spades to with enjoy a day out.

The water was cordoned off (OK it was a week day) but the sand itself was completely covered in faeces (from geese) we had to leave as it was completely unsuitable for young children to play in. Looking at your article which shows a two year old enjoying the new beach, I feel you should visit again to see what greeted us!
