Nearly 200 people—including children, parents and grandparents—marched around the brilliant Hengrove Play Park in Bristol.
They were protesting against the mayor’s proposed job cuts.
The jobs of the staff who supervise the play area are all under threat and this prompted local people to organise an online petition which raised over 10,000 signatures.
This gave them confidence to organise the demonstration. George Ferguson, the mayor, has proposed budget cuts which will lead to the loss of 1,000 jobs.
