Council privatises children’s playground and charges £20 for children to play

Last Updated: February 16, 2014By

Bizarrely, our cursed Coalition government has now been around so long that I no longer even bat an eyelid at this kind of revelation.
It’s still wrong; it still needs to be exposed; it still needs to be fought.

    Are they insane. Absolutely disgusting, hang your heads in shame you parasites. Who the hell has £20 for their children to play these days.

    If all of you refused to visit the site they would have to rethink! This is taking away the freedom of you & your children – parks are where we can take our children to exercise & learn about history, geography, playing ball, cycling etc – we were promised after the war that at all cost parks & libraries would always be free!

    The Conservatives think only of money and getting more of it for it’s own sake.

    And for this reason and others independence in Scotland is is a growing need.How long can the good working class citizens of England afford the ways of this thieving coalition.They have taken the life out of the the union in order to keep the working class people down so not to have any hope of betterment or self respect.This is today’s British union and not the way the vast majority of Scottish citizens care to live. Independence is our way of saying to those in Westminster we in Scotland are finished with you; we scots are better than this.

    Ok everyone raging about this and who ever posted it needs to actually look into what they are complaining about. The play park will still be free, they are ADDING a Go Ape at the same place which costs £20.

      Actually the original “play park” had a multitude of more advanced play equipment and staff working them… the council tore down all the advanced equipment, sacked the work force, and replaced it with tipical “park/kids” facilities then sold the rights to goape to re-introduce more advanced facilities at a premium saving money for the council (no staff costs/maintenance) and at the same time creating a nice little earner for the council by charging rent to goape each year.
