Ok, last week I took my kids to the playground at Pickie Fun Park in Bangor. My 4yr old asked me could he take his shoes off amd I said yes. He had a great time climbing and playing on all the frames, ropes and slides. Loads of different textures to experience and ways to user his feet. You want to have seen him on the rope bridge, feet folding round the ropes and toes gripping etc. It was brilliant! He loved it! Anyway, yesterday my wife was out for run and ran past the park. She noticed a new sign saying "Footwear must be worn at all times". Not impressed! Spent half of last night thinking about it. I was going to find out who was in charge there and bail in, headlong, asking why they're discriminating against barefooters, and just have an argument with whoever it is. Then decided that's not gonna get me anywhere. Then I thought education my be the way forward, a little diplomacy in letter format. But they'll probably just scrunch it up and bin it. I know the mayor here so might go down that route. He knows a little of barefoot running and he might be easier to convince. Anyone challenged this sort of thing before and have any tips?
