Ball Field Damage at Brookside

There has been damage recently to our ball fields here at the school from dogs digging holes and not being cleaned up after.

We ask that anyone who has a dog on our fields to please respect the fact that it is used by the children in our community and ensure they are not doing damage to the field and being cleaned up after.

Thank you.
