Following reports of likely cuts to funding for maintenance and provision of Children’s play areas by Local Authorities, Roger Hurst has started a Government e-petition which proposes a levy on the Professional Football Clubs for some of their wealth to be used to provide play areas for children.

As well as helping to provide an essential facility for young children the money invested in this manner, to help keep our children fit and active, could also increase the potential for those very children to go on to participate in football (as well as other sport of course).
