Do not charge Small Steps Preschool to use the park

Do not charge Small Steps preschool for use of a public park

Why is this important?

Boreham Parish Council have announced they are going to charge Small Steps Pre-school to continue to use the small children's play area at the back of the village hall.

They say that even though Small Steps is a registered charity they must contribute towards the upkeep of the area as they are a business.

Small Steps has used the playground for over 10 years and have always allowed others to use the playground at all times. I believe that it is vital for children's health and wellbeing to spend time outdoors exercising.

Reasons for signing

  • To demonstrate some Councillors are on your side. Public Parks should be free at the point of use. Your taxes has already contributed to these Open Spaces services.
  • Half of today's problems have been caused by the conservatives continued withdrawal of leisure facilities for young people.viz a viz,clouded of swimming pools,selling off of playing fields etc etc.
  • Ridiculous idea. The children can play free of charge if with their parents but have to pay if with their pre-school class.
