Roads closed so the local councils kids can play in the road. Which they do anyway everyday....what is the point?

What we used to do - there were so few cars then. I think they should turn off the central heating and eat stew too. I wouldn't wish the winter of '63 on them @ school with one coke stove per classroom though.

I don't tend to go to the Malling area anyway, so this won't affect me.

Only a little bit of Malling. No thoroughfares involved. Access for residents maintained. Not for very long. Hardly lock down. I hope everyone (who actually wants to) has fun.

No cars on the road will also help bring the pollution levels down in Malling. I'm looking forward to breathing fresh sir for a couple of hours. Statistics show that 3 Malling residents die every year from needless pollution caused by traffic.

So which roads are closed and what times.

Hi all.
It'll be in place from 1pm-4pm. You *can* drive in the closed-off bit, but just need to be extra careful not to run over any children.
There's another one due for 4 June.
Might be a slight inconvenience I guess, but nothing too awful - certainly not as much as Virgin Media digging up our pavements all week
Here's some information from the leaflet.
"Queens Road (from the junction with Barn Road), Deanery Close and Fitzgerald Road have been given a Temporary Play Street Order. This means that during agreed limited hours the road will be closed to traffic using 'road closed' barriers and volunteer stewards in hi-viz vests. Parked cars can be left on the street and residents and visitors can drive in and out, escorted by a volunteer steward. Drivers will be fully responsible for ensuring they drive safely and carefully. Parents will be fully responsible for their own children."
Here's a link with more info:
