I have to say, we were a little wary when our 8 year old showed an interest in going to the new BMX track. When you drive past, it is always very busy, with children considerably older, so we did have concerns about the language that maybe used; it was also a little disheartening to see the damage to the bin within weeks of it being opened.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m fully aware these words are in his vocabulary, however in my little bubble I like to think they are not
So one afternoon we ventured down with our 8 and 4 year old and I have to say how pleasantly surprised we were. Yes there were adults, older children, girls, boys… However, it was great to see such a wide age range of people using a community facility together.
The older children, encouraged my youngest as he wobbled round. Gave him the space so that he didn’t take them out too when he fell off and they had a great time.
What a great addition it has been to Kingsway!
(My Dad did suggest that perhaps the local schools need to take the children around litter picking – that way they may learn not to drop rubbish in the first place)
