Status change is a great idea
I was delighted to read the very practical proposal by Jack Sparrow to apply for recognition of the Recreational Ground as the Bath City Green. I am only surprised that it has not been proposed before.
How sensible to seize the opportunity to provide the green lung that has been referred to so often in the past but never taken any further. The council now has a simple solution to its most long standing problem.
I am not surprised that the bullish Councillor Dixon should take exception. He has spent most of his time canvassing on behalf of the Bath professional rugby club, seeking to disadvantage the very beneficiaries of the trust set up to protect past, present and future citizens.
At times I wonder which ward, if any, he represents, so immersed is he with Craig and his honcho Blofeld. He seems to suggest, too, that the citizens, the inherent owners, are not free to access the Rec whereas the professional squatters are free to do so, as Mr Sparrow says at a "ridiculously low" rent.

One can only agree with Mr Sparrow that they have outgrown the Rec.
I am sure that the majority of correspondents would support the proposal for a green and that recent writers such as Mick Ringham, PJ Cossins, the McGarrigles, the Bath Society et al and myself would be willing to help in any way we can to ensure that the Rec remains a benefit to the majority in our community, in case Messrs Frith, Newman and Waterson are still confused by the term democratic process.
It was also interesting to read about Peter Downey's latest scheme at Wellow and how he is leading the proposal to protect and provide for the local community there.
