Maryon Wilson Park’s wall of buggies – and a free cuppa

The campaign to save Maryon Wilson animal park is moving up a notch, with a “wall of buggies” protest planned for Wednesday lunchtime. The idea’s simple – to form a wall of buggies for an hour from 12 noon around the enclosure. “We are protesting against the planned cuts, which would mean losing the animal centre forever,” organisers say.

Sounds like too much effort? Well, The Big Red Bus Club children’s playgroup is offering a free cup of tea and biscuit to anyone who takes part, so you can recuperate afterwards. Look out for volunteers giving out vouchers.

    Did the organisers say why they chose a week day and do you need a buggy to attend?

    Not that it matters, I cant anyway as at work. Hope it works out well.

    I imagine they thought mums would be around in the week.

    And no, you don’t have to have a buggy to attend.

    Okay, it was just a thought, didn’t mean to irritate. Speaking as a childless working person, I would have liked to have participated as I do use the park. Maybe some of the Dads and other schoolkids would have liked to too. I hope they get a good turnout.
