Chil­dren hav­ing fun made my day

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Comment -

I would like to re­ply to Jen­nifer Mann’s critiscm of the chil­dren hav­ing a won­der­ful time in the foun­tains in Cathe­dral Square (wed­nes­day’s ET)

I went on Fri­day with two of my sons, aged four and five, and they had a fan­tas­tic time play­ing with the many chil­dren that were there.

It was won­der­ful to go some­where that didn’t cost the earth and you could sit and watch the chil­dren – just to see the chil­dren play­ing to­gether and laugh­ing on a lovely hot day made my day!

I just didn’t re­alise that it was against the law for chil­dren to strip down to their un­der­wear and have a good time, maybe Jen­nifer goes round at Christ­mas shout­ing bah hum­bug – what does she have against chil­dren hav­ing fun? If the el­derly re­ally wish to be away from “noisy chil­dren” there is a lovely gar­den down the road that is very quiet. Maybe she should re­tire there and let our chil­dren be chil­dren.
