No watersports
I hope proposals for watersports on Balderton Lake (Watersports At Lake On Agenda Again, Advertiser, February 2) are rejected.

The site is a tranquil haven for wildlife and should not be potentially spoilt by the noise and disruption of canoeing and kayaking, and the issues that could bring with access and storing equipment.

I can’t imagine the many fishermen who use the lake would welcome watersports.

The lake does not seem big enough for such activities. It should remain a community asset loved by families, dog walkers and anglers.

Clean-up crusade
THE campaign to clear Newark and Sherwood of litter continues to gather pace. The latest development in the fight sees the district council teaming up with Keep Britain Tidy as part of this year’s Great British Spring Clean.

Environmental groups, clubs, schools and businesses are being urged to get involved and make a difference on their doorstep.

If you think there is a problem near where you live, work or go to school this is a perfect opportunity to do something about it.

The council is distributing a limited number of free clean-up kits that contain everything needed to make a start.
