A petition has been launched to prevent the charging of sports activities on Hyde Park.
A charity group that uses the park for team bonding sporting events have discovered that there are moves to charge for playing sport on Hyde Park.
Charging through the nose
A private company (called Will to Win) approached the charity demanding they pay to continue playing.
The company not only wanted an up front
fee, but also wanted to charge per game.
The charity campaign
The charity "were shocked and have had
lots of discussions with Royal Parks and Will to Win to try and resolve
the situation, but they’re not budging".
Thus, they have resorted to a Change.org petition to try and ensure that free sport on Hyde Park remains a reality.
