Warning signs to come down at Apex Park as toxic algae clears

New environmental tests of the water in the lakes at Apex Park in Highbridge have found potentially toxic blue-green algae is no longer a danger.

Claire Faun, from Sedgemoor District Council, told "The Environment Agency took a sample from Apex Park this week and the results show the levels of blue green algae are now below the threshold."

She added: "There is still algae in the lake, but it is not the blue green algae strain."

"Fishing can now resume and permits can be purchased from Thyers Tackle in Highbridge on 01278 786934."

"Please be reminded the park byelaws state that aperson shall not in the park bathe, wade or wash in any lake. Neither shall a person allow a dog to enter the water."

The warning signs will be removed.

"There is plenty to do and see in the 42-acre park. Visitors can go skateboarding; use the outdoor gym, as well as just enjoying a walk and the wildlife."

"There is a children’s play area, a toddler area, a football goal, as well as BMX facility."

"Accessible paths go around the park suitable for buggies and wheelchairs. There are picnic spots, ample car parking and toilets. A variety of hot and cold refreshments are available from Lizzie’s Kitchen in a beautifully restored 1950's American Airstream catering unit."
