More travellers in Coppice Farm / New Invention

It seems just across the border in WV12, Walsall residents are having similar problems as us in WV11.  The Yam Yam is reporting travellers have moved moved onto open land off Coppice Farm Way.  The field, which is located at the bottom of the “Black Path” and divides Ashmore Park from Coppice Farm/New Invention is adjacent to the back entrance of Coppice School of Performing Arts.

Liberal Democrat Councillor for Willenhall North, Ian Shires had this to say on his website:

“Phone calls from constituents living in the area began coming in early yesterday evening…I have contacted Walsall Council officers and the Police in order to start the process of moving them on as a matter of urgency.

As well as the nuisance and inconvenience suffered by residents in the area there is the cost of cleaning up the site once they’ve gone so the sooner they’re moved on the better”

These travellers are believed to be a different group to those who last week moved on to the Ellards playing fields off Colman Avenue in Wednesfield.

About the Author

I have nearly always lived in Wednesfield, I moved away briefly but missed the sense of community and so swiftly moved back! I honestly believe Wednesfield has more to offer than the residents often give it credit for and wanted to do something to redress the balance of negativity around where we live. Working for a media company using the internet and social media as a marketing tool I had the skills and passion to help set up WV11.co.uk so did!
