One of our regular readers contacted us about holes that have appeared on the brae down to the Riverside from Mill Road. For generations bairns have indulged in wee engineering projects along the riverside and it is a tribute to the fact that there are still some youngsters that prefer outdoor life to the sedentary digital device option that it still goes on. But these ones are a bit too close to the path for our correspondent's liking.
They are just outwith the old BMX track and look as though they have been devised to add to the excitement of some of the existing humps and jumps in the area. Nothing like being creative and trying your own options when young but these look as though they might inconvenience and cause the odd wee moment of danger for the many people that use that path.
Another regular user of that path told the Gurn that he had nothing against the bairns having as much fun as possible in this area but these holes should really be filled in. So there you are, whoever created the holes, looks like folk are not too bothered by your activities but would like these two holes shifted to a safer spot.
