Now goal posts disappear from Westfield

A set of goal posts have disappeared from the playing field to the rear of Westfield Place.

Only one set of goal posts on Westfield park

The removal follows a series of actions by the York Council which has seen sports facilities eroded in what is York’s poorest neighbourhood. The sports field at Lowfields has been built on, the multi user games area closed and a (private) bowling green sold for housing.

No consultation took place before the set of goalpost were removed.

One set remains. The ward committee had been expected to arrange for the posts to be repainted, and the pitch remarked, before the start of the football season.
