Should local councils be able to charge for parkrun events?
The Department for Communities and Local Government has in the last few days issued a public consulation document "Running Free". This consultation sets out Government proposals "to legislate to put it beyond doubt that local authorities, including parish councils, cannot charge parkrun or junior parkrun for the use of public parks."
I would encourage all Bugs, whatever, their views, to respond to the consultation. (I am strongly opposed to Councils being able to charge people for running in the park. Equally I have no problem at all with looking at ways in which parkrunners can contribute more back to the park - for example by participating in voluntary litter picks.)
