Are Our Green Spaces and Community Buildings Safe?

Might be a slightly contentious post on what aims to be a gardens related site, but it's one that I personally, and if you love your local parks and gardens maybe we all, should feel very concerned about.

She was patiently trying to explain that due to the prolonged spell of wet weather we had...
