We the undersigned,
Want to save the Alexandra play park trawler from destruction.
The trawler is a treasured part of Alexandra play park and it’s centrepiece. It is very popular with children, both from the local area and tourists. It not only has a recreational use for kids but also helps to attract visitors to the sea front and contributes to the local economy. It would be to the detriment of Penzance and our children for the trawler to be destroyed. We accept that it does need work to keep it safe for children to play on. However rather than seeing it merely as a drain on resources, we believe it should be seen as an asset and one that requires investment. We ask you to reconsider plans to destroy the piece and instead to draw up alternative plans to safeguard what is a popular local feature for Penzance's children.
