Water Play Area Petition For Burgess Hill Delivered
8th August 2013
To Mid Sussex District Council
The District Council may have banned electronic petitions, but that didn't stop BHU, local resident Chris French and other volunteers from obtaining the 1,300 signatures required to force the council to discuss installing a water play area in St Johns Park, Burgess Hill.
The petition was delivered to the council offices this afternoon (Thursday) and as a result the District Council will have to discuss the matter at a full meeting of the council soon.
The full story takes too long to type, so here's an audio interview with Chris French...
Chris also had the following to say..
"I would like to say a huge thank you to all of 1,379 people in Burgess Hill and elsewhere in Mid Sussex, who signed the petition, for their support and for the many businesses and individuals who not only signed it but also helped to collect signatures."
