How to behave in the park

Park News: In true rural areas you know if you’ve done something wrong when you get chased by a red-faced yokel – but how do you know if you’re following the rules of the urban countryside? Thankfully, after a lengthy consultation period the Government has now produced a new colorful and informative leaflet, advising on the ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ of urban green spaces.

Spelman explained, “From a gentle stroll or a picnic amongst dried dog muck, to a long-distance walk during a bus strike or heart-pumping adventure after being pursed by muggers, the urban countryside provides every opportunity for enjoyment and relaxation.”

“This is just the kind of thing city-dwellers need” added London Mayor Boris Johnson.
