I personally am not surprised with it still having the concrete floor. I know many kids have minor accidents and accidents can happen anywhere however 'safe' you make things but I remember many years ago a child died at woodbank park fell off the top of the slide onto concrete. Anything that minimises the risk is a good thing (rubber flooring etc). However it seems to be going the other way lately with parks like Lyme Park and High Lane having rocks as steps to slides etc. Speaking of which a child cut their head open on that only a few weeks back.

Surely falling on hard things and getting hurt is part of the learning curve.

.... so that Market Street would look like this:  http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/4361   Cool

My point was really that we don't really need to spend money on the ministry of paint colours if the council is so short of money it needs to salvage the swings for scrap metal.

As Dave says, priorities.

Come along to Kumon’s Maths and English Assessment Event to find out what your child can achieve.
The Kumon Maths and English Programmes have been helping children of all ages and abilities across the world study beyond their school level for 60 years. The programmes enable children to develop their study skills and confidently tackle advanced work.
With findings, such as those in the recent PISA report, continuously telling us that literacy and numeracy skills in the UK and Ireland are falling behind the rest of the world, perhaps it is time to find out what our world-class education programmes can offer your child and buck this national trend.
Come along to a Kumon Maths and English Assessment Event at the Kumon Romiley Study Centre on Saturday 26 April 2014 and let us tell you what skills your child currently has, and which ones we can help them develop.
Through daily study of the Kumon programmes, your child will develop the independent learning skills to learn for themselves, so they do not become dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others. Your child will then be able to apply these skills to all subjects and outside of school too.
The Kumon Maths and English Assessment Event will take place at Bredbury and Romiley Community Centre, The Precinct, Compstall Road, Romiley, SK6 4EB, between 10.30am and 1.00 pm.
For more information please contact Sue Spence on 0161 870 6757 or email romiley@kumoncentre.co.uk.

Personally, I think Gaz is being very sensible re-homing his beloved poodle now that there is a new baby on the way.
How many times do we have to hear of a baby or young child being maimed (or worse) by their pet which 'would never hurt a fly'.
I would hardly call a baby a 'new toy' and at least Gaz knows his poodle will be going to a good home (not what I would call abandonment).
Gaz, all the best to you and your growing family.
Lily.

We got sorted with a great family from Marple.

Thanks for the tip though :-)

Oh, it wasn't a joke. It was a pointed remark which you've obviously missed.

Strange that I agree with you Dave. I had a meeting with council employees last week telling me which colour my neighbours shop front could be painted. Do we need conservation clots?
Nothing new there. I seem to remember that there was an attempt to re-vamp Market Street (pre-pedestrianisation) in the 1960s. Everyone had to paint the front of their shops and the colour was laid down in the notification.

A very sad reflection on the times we live in.  Whatever the economic problems we face, our councillors have clearly got their priorities wrong.
