I have lived close to Bingham Park for most of my life and I think, in its quiet way it offers something for everyone, young and old. For the young it is a safe environment to use up lots of energy. From the five-a-side all weather football pitch to the two new park tennis courts - which can be booked online - there’s something for everyone. I’m pleased that there has already been a good response in the number of people who are booking the tennis courts.Courts which are not being used can be freely accessed for youngsters to learn to ride their bikes, scooters, skateboards on flat surfaces.Older people can train their dogs, practice Tai Chi and have informal tennis practice on courts with no nets before venturing onto the pay courts.Lower down the park, there is a thriving bowling green with many friendly matches going on throughout the spring and summer months, and new members welcomed.As a dog walker, I use the park on a daily basis.

In May 2017, a month prior to the General Election, Letchworth's 'Business Improvement District' (BID) structure — an unelected and unaccountable body — voted at a board meeting to bar political parties and/or campaign groups from setting up stalls in the town's center. The move was undertaken as "securing political balance was proving to be a challenge", and was said to "ensure equal representation for political parties" — by oxymoronically precluding any and all of them from campaigning activities in key public places. © Flickr/ Rude CechAnti-Islam groups have organized a protest in Dudley, England, opposing plans to build a new mosque in town and claiming that mosques in the United Kingdom are responsible for spreading extremist views, RT reportsThe underlying implication — that too many parties, or an inequitable distribution thereof, were campaigning in Letchworth … [Read more...] about Shadowy UK Local Business Groups Subvert Local Democracy and Prevent Protest
