I note there is a follow up meeting to do with Wiltshire wanting to build 3000 homes next to Swindon on 27 February. Hopefully people will be fired up to attend. Need help to get them there.

Grange Park 210 homes could open door for 2,000 houses to bring Lydiard Park into the town. Speculative planning application a Trojan Horse for much bigger scheme.

The kids who have disabilities will now have somewhere to go with their brothers and sisters where they can play together as brothers, sisters and friends should.

Fantastic tig , well done  ;)

Vulnerable children !

Good Lord !!
These are children who have physical impairments, of which excludes them from a lot of activities because they are simply not accessible !

It has taken Tig a good few years of determination and persistence to get the council to acknowledge that their play parks were not accessible. Tig has spent hours designing questionnaires that we put out to carers and parents, and I spent many times at Lydiard /Asda/Tesco's etc with my clip board getting a petition together.
The children's faces say it all in the picture - they deserve to be able to be children and play in the park as children do, regardless of ability - at the end of the day they are children/young people who have the same feelings, emotions, likes, dislikes as any other child  ;)
I love these kids , as what you see is what you get and to see them having fun, makes me smile  :)

The borough have actually cottoned on to the Idea and more accessible play area's are being introduced.
I know that the Richard Jeffries site is going to be made inclusive and I think its fantastic the parents and carers from the  Parent/carer advisory group have been involved and had some input .

Maybe there is a member on TS who has been involved in the Richard Jeffries project who might like to comment on the progress and give us an update  ;)

Richard Jefferies Park, I heard a few weeks ago it was in the process of being closed down and riped out, is that temporary I wonder?  I'm afraid I didn't follow that plot.

At the time I thought it was bad news, not just for the kids there, but it didn't bode too well for our plans for the TWIST (adventure playground part of our @penhill park plan.
