I am happy to say that I am enjoying a glass of wine. It is to celebrate. The residents in Princes Park have been asking for somewhere for the young people of the area to play. Well- tonight the council planning committee passed our application for a ballpark. It has been a long time coming and I know the youngster were beginning to think it never would. In fact I was beginning to wonder as well. But it looks like their patience has paid off.

Walking To School

I was looking through the older blogs and I spotted this picture. It went with an article about children walking to school.
Last week the Daily Express ran an article about the same subject. They were quoting scientist saying children are less liking to suffer from ill health if they walk more. A good walk everyday to school will do the trick. This would also solve one of the biggest problems parking. There is no resident living near our schools that do not complain about the parking. Residents are unable to get access to their own property due to parents parking.
I know some parents do have to come some distance to travel. They can still park safely and the children can have a short walk. Those parents who's children go to Maudene can park in Morrisons. It is not far but it will be some exercise for the children. I am sure there are places near Kingfisher at school where parking is safe and not too far for the children to walk.
We all like to spoil our children,but sometimes it is not the best thing for them.
