lark in the park

this week has been 'love parks week'
a recognition and celebration of our beloved green and free areas

so we went along to:

A Lark in the Park
An all ages, all interests, all FREE Community Festival

Piddinghoe Sports Park, Peacehaven
Saturday 30 July from
As part of national Love Parks Week, this FREE festival is guaranteed to be a good lark

(to quote their website)
there was dog agility
(not free)

you had to pay to enter your dog

balloon modelling
(not free)

a tea dance, rock climbing, arts and crafts, face painting, netball, football, etc etc
(not one of them free)

i'd spent £3.70 getting there so i had £1.30 left in my purse which only bought 2 balloons
consequently the girls were very disappointed and hot and bothered and annoyed

i love our free public places (especially libraries)
but don't promote a free local facility then charge for everything 

i certainly don't go to events if i know it's going to cost me (anyone who knows me will confirm such)

oh well
