A sliding iron door was built at the entrance of the village to prevent picnickers from disturbing locals, who say no incident has occurred since this measure. AA photoVisitors to the village of Çeltek, which is known for its natural beauty, in the Black Sea province of Samsun must now ring a special bell in order to be admitted to the village under new security measures.
The village, located on the coast of the Altınkaya Dam, is a frequent place for those looking to picnic. Because of the village’s popularity a local committee has decided to enact security measures at the entrance to the village to deter picnickers from disturbing village locals.
A sliding iron door was built at the entrance of the village by Mukhtar Kadir Meral and the village council, who also installed security cameras. Visitors to the village now have to ring a bell and go through security control in order to gain entrance to the village.
A local of the village, Sait Meral said that their village was similar to the Sinop Peninsula for its natural beauty and therefore draws many people who want to have a picnic.
He said that some people consumed alcohol and disturbed the village locals. “This is why we have applied to the village council to take measure against these people. A sliding door was built and security cameras were put up three years ago in the entrance of the village. Now visitors are under control. No incident has occurred since this measure,” he said.
