I’ve read the following article on the Yahoo News Digest app today
Park users could be asked to pay by cash-strapped councils http://yahoonewsdigest-gb.tumblr.com/90135715968
Councils seriously can’t be thinking of charging people to use parks? This is the most ridiculous idea I’ve ever heard. Parks keep our children healthy by allowing our children to play and get some fresh air in a safe environment. Charging adults to let their children ‘play outside’ is just bonkers. It could eventually lead to kids hanging about on the streets to play (especially for those parents who couldn’t afford to pay for the privilege). Anti social behaviour would possibly increase with children hanging around street corners.
Thinking a about it, it would be like a tax on Fresh Air.
What do you think?
