Hemingford Grey Parish Council and the trustees of the playing fields have decided our village children do not deserve anything in the way of playing areas.

The playing fields trust has taken their area to build a new squash court, gym and car park, with the understanding that the play area with new equipment would be re-sited in the field. But we now hear the project has run out of money.

Never mind the children. The squash court and gym are open and running.

Also, Daintree Green play equipment is in need of renewing and possibly

re-siting, but again we have a committee of talkers and no action.

Possibly, it's time for the council and trustees to make way for some younger blood, who still have young children and understand their needs.
