Yet again people are punished financially in Halifax.
I regularly go to Shibden Park with my two boys and dog for an hour or two – but no more.
Last week saw the introduction of parking charges – £2 per day on bank holidays and school holidays which I find unacceptable.
On an already tight budget, like many families, to go for a day, or just an hour at the park is ideal for cheap fun but to pay £2, effectively to go into a public park whose upkeep is paid for by Council Tax payers (which I am) is ridiculous.
Yes I know it’s only £2 but over the month this would end up costing me in the region of £20.
Looks like we will have to go and play in the woods – it’s free there you know !
