Save Our Parks

Save Our Parks

BDFAS has been contacted by a member of the Birmingham Open Spaces Forum to see if we can help with a campaign. She writes:

Britain’s parks are at risk. There’s no legal responsibility to look after them and squeezed budgets mean our local green spaces – from playgrounds, to the park you relax in on your lunch break – don’t have the money they need. We could end up being forced to pay to use our parks – or lose them altogether.

A group of MPs are looking into the crisis right now. They’re thinking of making protecting parks a legal requirement, and they’ll advise the government on what to do.
A huge petition, signed by all of us, will prove how much we love our parks. It could convince the MPs to come up with a water-tight plan for protecting them.

Can you sign the petition now and demand that looking after our parks is made a legal requirement by the government? It only takes 30 seconds to add your name – http://bit.ly/2coGutk.

AGM INFORMATION

In order to save on postal costs and in line with NADFAS policy, the Committee plans to send out this year’s AGM information via email.

We realise that some of our Members do not have access to email and will be happy to provide a hard copy in these cases. Would those members please indicate that they would like to continue to receive BDFAS information by mail when signing in at the February, March or April lectures.

Could you also let us know if you have changed your email address recently.
