A GROUP of travellers camped illegally at Victoria Park, Malvern Link, moved on tonight.

Malvern Town Council has resecured the gates and will be attending in the morning to complete a site tidy up.

Five caravans and accompanying cars arrived in the town’s Victoria Park, in the middle of a residential area opposite Morgan Motor Company in Pickersleigh Road, on Saturday evening.

The park is owned by Malvern Town Council and a noticeboard in the car park warns that it is against byelaws to bring any vehicles onto the land.

Hi Simon,

To be honest I have no problem with the traveler lifestyle. I myself have wandered around this country either working or just looking at new things.

You seem to have the impression that it's possessions or money that annoys people so much when travelers turn up.

It's not.

It's the mess or damage that is often left behind that is the problem.

I'm all for alternative lifestyles or leaving what is considered to be "normal" society behind, but leaving your responsibilities behind as well is a different matter.

Someone once said to me "we should take only memories and leave only footprints"

Even though I think that's wrong for city life, it's always worked well for me when I've been on the road.

If more travelers took that attitude there would be a lot less prejudiced and hatred when next they turned up.
