This is my rushed entry. Off on holiday to Cornwall early tomorrow and realised that I didn't have a entry, so grabbed this whilst on the school run.
May the Force be with you.

There is a now slightly out of fashion trend here  for couples to place a padlock on a bridge to symbolise their affection and loyalty. This is one of dozens attached to a pedestrian bridge in Agen.

A shot from my Corona rebellion series yesterday. having been told all public parks were open we took the grandkids to the local park. So excited! Got there to find 2 kids and parents in already but all gates locked. "Squeeze in between the fence and the bushes " they said - "It should be open but they`ve forgotten to unlock the gates". Did so and had a nice play and advised others to do what we had done after the first parents had left. Soon 20 + people in there. e squeezed out and wen for a walk coming back 20 minutes later. By this time all had been expelled by park keepers and leaflets re-applied. Seems only some parks in Leeds were open to the public and not all. Typical of the lack of clarity being given.

I assume you are not going to use this photo, as it was taken under illegal circumstances?  :o :legit:

Now come on you don't expect the council to know what they are doing.  >:(

I thought that all play areas were open now.
Our local one is.
Could this be a local decision by the local/parish Council???

On looking into it Leeds had decided they could only open once all equipment had been checked and measures taken to assess and control numbers! As if they have people on site to monitor that and did those checks more than annually before! I`m guessing it was more a political statement about Johnson announcing something for the next day without having alerted councils to the opening. They`ve officially opened only 4 playgrounds in Leeds. Unofficially every one I`ve seen is in use now.

I bet they are in use. The message is confusing at times and to open a few and not others is never going to work.
