After news broke that Stoke Gifford Council would charge a parkrun group to use their parks, South Gloucestershire Lib Dem Councillor Claire Young said: “This is outrageous. The Tory council chair has said people can run in Stoke Gifford whenever they like – except now they can’t on a Saturday morning unless they bring their wallet. We should be encouraging physical activity, and finding ways to support community groups where people want to do things together. Not attacking them, and putting a price on fun.”
