THE LONG CHALK ROAD, inviting all children and young people to draw pictures with chalk on the road to Lord Gage's House. There is entertainment on the way including Mr Pineapple Head, Clown, at 12 noon and story-telling, drum circle and healing tent etc plus local musicians including local YOUTH BANDS from STARFISH!!

Bloody vandalism is what I call it, as well as irretrievably stupid (who in their right mind would put children on the A27?)

"The Long Chalk Road, Firle Park
Come and make your mark on probably the longest chalk graffiti piece ever! Lord Gage has loaned his drive through Firle Park for this fundraising event for Wishing Tree Trust - supporting families in crisis. Part of the National Big Draw. Music, drumming, storytelling, food, drink and more!"

Thanks Smiler - I still think it's stupid encouraging children play in a road regardless of where that road is.
Surely anyone organising a public event for juniors should have an IQ above the room temperature? Equal ops I suppose!

The park road from the lodge to Firle place is gated and closed unless the house is open to the public. Access allowed for the residents only, so there is no problem with the children being in the road, plus it would be attended by adults too.
Drivers have responsibilities too.

At least we take the piss in proper English !
I'm not sure it's a good idea to let kids think that applying graffiti is a good idea, tbh.

I totally agree. To be completely safe we ought to ban drawing in schools and never let kids outside either, I reckon.

I am so in favour of keeping in kids indoors, at least until the age of 25. Living in the the only (nearly) level road for miles, it is skateboard park, football pitch and BMX track, and for some reason they like to play outisde our house, where they're near the junction, stand the best chance of getting killed and can wind my dogs up.
The other Sunday, I had to go and put a flea in the ear of two boys skateboarding outside my bedroom window - it wasn't even 7 am!

If grafffiti encourages youngsters to grow up with correct English then I am all for it. I don't have a problem with tasteful graffiti when its in the right places. Its better than looking at County Hall, HQ eyc!

Are you serious?
I think they should remain in the womb full stop.

Might that not lead to different health & safety issues though, EM? I hate to think that people might burst. That would be even messier than nasty chalk scribbles on the road.

"Suffer the little children?" Jesus once said, and we've been suffering from them ever since.
The snivelly-wivelly bustards serve no purpose. They don't do chores. They don't know how to spell. They don't behave. They don't have spines. They don't have coping skills. They don't understand the word "polite."
They've been attachment parented. They've been family bedded. They've been num-num booby-fed until they were old enough to ask for it. They've been timed-out. They've been self-esteemed. And, none of it has worked.
They run willy-nilly through classrooms and our lives because there ain't enough Ritalin to go around, and if the Government has their way, there won't be enough Secure Units to go around, either.
