To the Acting District Manager, Community Services, Lunenburg District Office,

We, the families of Lunenburg County and other concerned citizens, respectfully request that you keep the outdoor play area at the Bridgewater Family Support Centre accessible to families above and beyond the operational hours of the centre. The Family Support Centre provides many important services to the local community and in particular to low income families and new parents; and one of these services is an excellent outside play environment for younger children that is free, family orientated, tailored for toddlers and young children, central to the town, fenced and secure. By enforcing a ruling that the centre must padlock it's park outside of it's office hours, the community loses a valuable resource for safe, secure outside play in the afternoons, evenings and weekends. As responsible parents we do understand and support the use of a visible disclaimer, akin to the local schools, that defers responsibility and liability to the families using the play area.

As a mother of two young children who regularly uses the services provided by the centre, I cannot stress the importance of the play area in my children's daily life. Please reconsider this motion and allow the Family Support Centre to support the health, happiness and well being of all the families who use this facility.
