POLICE NOTICE FOR SUMMER

Penicuik Estate is a fantastic local area with lots of outdoor fun to be had.  The Estate manager has asked if we could just remind people to be courteous when within the grounds in terms of taking away any litter, not causing any damage to trees, plants, or ground, no setting of fires, and no vandalism.  Last year they had around 18 trees spray painted with offensive graffiti which they are obviously hoping to avoid again. There are also a couple of ponds within the grounds – these are strictly no access areas and should not be entered at any time, in order to prevent any drowning risks.  The Estate manager is more than happy for people to enter and enjoy the grounds, as long as the above are adhered to.  There will be extra police patrols in and around the Estate throughout the summer holiday period.
