A group of parents in Croydon are fighting to keep a play area open in the London Borough after it was announced that funding would be pulled.
Croydon PlayZone, which acted as a safe haven during the London riots in part due to its secure play area fencing
, is set to lose its funding from local authorities in December.
According to the Croydon Guardian, parents and carers have signed a petition so far containing 350 signatures, which they hope to deliver to Croydon Council.
Parent Amechi Udo said: "It was one of the few businesses which re-opened very quickly after the fires and gave free access. Also crucially it's a safe space. Children can still come and play; parents can still come and talk."Security fencing
may also be required to protect children at a play area at the Rumney Recreation Ground in Cardiff, Wales, after a bike rider was photographed performing wheelies close by, walesonline.co.uk reported.
