Fighting to save Parkland's Playing Fields

On Wednesday I visited Parkland's School in Sketty to see for myself the playing fields that the ruling Labour group on Swansea Council want to sell.

I was shocked. These fields are at the heart of the school and form an important recreation area for the 520 plus children who attend it. If the fields were lost the children would lose their infant playground, would be cut off from ancient woodlands and be confined to a small space at the far end of the school, leaving them with inadequate sports facilities.

I understand Swansea Council's need to sell off surplus land to fund school improvements but these playing fields are not surplus to requirements, they are fundamental to the ethos of the school. Judge for yourself from this video made by parents and children at the school.
