    Does the Government really want healthy people?

    Post by Eddie on Tue Apr 12 2016, 14:14

    Running and other physical activity is not that good for losing weight, but it helps, it does help to make a person fitter and stronger, which must be good for health right. All across the UK and other countries the 'Park Runs' have been a big success. Open to all whatever your age or ability, just turn up and take part. With the Government telling us obesity and it's often linked type two diabetes now at epidemic levels, and never ending stories of people not exercising enough, the Government must be 100% in favour of 'Park Runs' yes, err no, not in Bristol.

    "A council could become the first in the world to ask parkrun to pay a fee for use of its park.

    About 300 adults and children regularly take part in two free timed runs organised by parkrun UK in Little Stoke Park, near Bristol, on Saturdays.

    Parkrun's ethos in the 850 runs it organises in 12 countries is for the event to be free and open to everyone.

    Stoke Gifford Parish Council said it was "unfair" to expect non-running residents to pay for path maintenance.

    Parkrun UK organisers have warned the Stoke Gifford event, that has attracted 4,083 registered runners, would end if a charge was imposed."

    Parkrun cancelled after council becomes first in world to charge people to run in local park.

    "A parish council has become the first in the world to charge people - to go for a run in their local park.

    Non-profit organisation Parkrun has been operating a free fun run in Little Stoke, South Glos., since 2012 and encourages local people to join in and get fit.

    But after months of debate, Stoke Gifford Parish Council has decided that Parkrun should make a financial contribution for the "wear and tear" caused to the park.

    The parish council voted in favour of a proposed charge of £1 per head on the 300 joggers who take part in the weekly event.

    Councillors claim the event can no longer be held for free without a contribution towards the maintenance of the park, toilets and parking facilities."

    This story from here  http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/parkrun-cancelled-after-council-becomes-7746286

    So, £300 times 52 weeks and the Council wanted to trouser £15,600,00 to cover wear to the paths. These people are already paying for the Parks etc via Council Tax. I remember when Councils were classed as Public Servants, these days they operate robbery without the violence. So much for improving the health of the nation.

    How long before some thieving bastard works it out that low carbing diabetics live longer, therefore they claim more old age pension and need to pay levy to the Government. affraid

    Is there something wrong with the maths there, Eddie?

    Our council used to charge 15p for the town car parks. At one stage they put the charge up to 60p. Then they made the first hour free.

    Now they have rescinded the free hour and put the charge up to 70p. result - one nearly empty car park. 

    People who are fit enough can park at the Co-Op and walk down, or like I did park in the industrial estate and walk through the park (I used to walk down and back from home but prefer to drive down and walk elsewhere instead). It's the old and infirm who can't do this who are going to be hit by the charge. The Bastards.

    What do you make the answer Derek? 300 runners paying a £1 x 52 weeks comes to £15,600,00 on my calculator.
