Save Milton Country Park!

Most of us in the village have enjoyed roaming in Milton Country Park at some point. Sadly South Cambs District Council has decided closing this last outpost of green space will save them a few bob, and have set a date of the 31st August 2007 for its demise. You can read the full details at http://www.savemiltoncountrypark.com/.

I'd urge everybody to support this campaign. The park is a place to relax, a place to learn, a place to run around and let off steam; it has something for everyone. The Council will save just over one pound per year per South Cambs resident from closing it - I can't think of many other ways to improve 'quality of life' for so little.
