|Travellers on parkland|
|Friday 25 August 2000
Travellers settled on parkland today, near a Maidenhead school. They entered the area, part of Braywick Park, this morning. The exact location was the Braywick Nature Centre, close to Wimbury School, Hibbert Road.
Around a dozen caravans and other vehicles were parked on the land. Unfortunately, there were reports of criminal damage, intimidation and abuse and the police were called. They served an eviction notice effective within 24 hours. The travellers are now off the land.
