‼️This is not for now while under national lockdown but from March maybe April depending on the situation with Covid at the time, the reason for me starting this now is to get as many names down as possible‼️

Whilst I was waiting outside wallington station I took a sit on the bench outside station and in the middle of the bench was plaque “sit here if your happy to talk” 

with the massive raise in people coming out and saying they have suffered with mental health issues and the raise of loneliness in the uk I believe having these conversation benches around local park gives people the opportunity to strike up conversations with people they never would have before, when we was a child are parents would take us to the park and we would leave with 10 new friends but as adults it’s much had to meet new people and open up to others, so with these benches it’s like a mutual agreement that both party’s are happy to talk.

this idea won’t cure or stop the problem but it could  definitely create a new opportunity for people to engage in conversations
