Please, please stop paying ‘car guards’!

The Kenton main street and parking areas have been battling with an ongoing car guard issue for several years now.
The other day I counted seven ‘car guards’ in just one area of the car park at the shops in Kenton. A bit overwhelming I am sure you’ll agree!
