E Petition commenced in response to concerns of cuts in funding for play areas


The following may be of interest:

Following reports of likely cuts to funding for maintenance and provision of Children’s play areas by Local Authorities, I have started a Government e-petition which proposes a levy on the Professional Football Clubs for some of their wealth to be used to provide play areas for our children.

As well as helping to provide an essential facility for young children the money invested in this manner, to help keep our children fit and active, could also increase the potential for those very children to go on to participate in football (as well as other sport of course).

I would be extremely grateful if you would consider passing the link onto your members in order that they may be able to hopefully support the campaign, and publicise the petition to residents within their respective areas.


The link is –


Please support the proposal, our children deserve these areas.
