Council votes to charge people to run in a local park

Geoff Riley

12th April 2016

Has the world - or at least a tiny corner of Bristol - gone completely mad? Councillors in Little Stoke Park have voted 6 to 4 to charge Parkrun for the right to operate their weekly Saturday 5k jogs and in doing so has become the first council in the world to enforce a charge.
