WE should all be delighted that our MP Jim Paice has offered to act as an "honest broker" in the Roswell Pits controversy.
His willingness to take up local issues is one of the reasons he is elected with huge majorities and I am sure, if he were a Liberal Democrat MP, his intervention would be more appreciated in some quarters.
Over the past 30 years, I have walked, fished, sailed, swum, moored a cabin cruiser and even skated there.
Unfortunately, I have never seen a bittern or an otter, but I have seen coypu, water voles and mink which seriously damage the water environment.
On the other hand, I seldom, see many humans, especially in the winter.
I hope our new wave of nature-loving visitors take advantage of the bounty the area offers.

At this time of year, observant walkers can find: blackberries, sloes, cob nuts, walnuts and a variety of apples, plums and mushrooms. There is also a damson tree. So there we are. A super bountiful area and an environment for all residents. Stop carping and get out there and enjoy the pits and their bounty, and remember, there are three pits.
