Petition for Parks Funding
During one of his Covid-19 briefings, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
“It is very important for people’s mental and physical wellbeing that they should be able to get out and exercise if they possibly can, and many, many people do not have access to private green spaces…That’s why parks, open spaces are so absolutely crucial for our country and for our society, but when we do that we have to do it responsibly.”
Proper funding would acknowledge the Government’s assertion that parks have a front-line role in protecting us against pandemics and climate change, and boosting our physical and mental health. Sign the petition for a national parks fund we can all be proud of and please share this widely – many thanks!
