Kids Playing outside
- Albert (22nd May 2020 22:20:23)

What are the current lockdown rules on children playing outside with their friends from different households? I ask this because today in Meadow Way/ Weylands Close there seemed to be an awful lots of kids ( we counted 10 or 11) playing in the road and closely mixing together. Have rules about only meeting one friend from one different household changed ? If they are mixing together already then why not just send them to school?

I used to live in Weykands . Unfortunately I remember the housing there is pretty poor/ squalid. They are old and little with very small gardens. Their kids unfortunately have no safe space. So they are forced to play noisily out in the road all day. It’s both a noisy and dangerous narrow road with cars parked all over the pavements. We moved to a much better area in Bordon to give our kids more space and a safer environment.

Gavin I would like to inform you that the houses are neither poor or squalid

9 weeks without seeing their friends, 9 weeks of social isolation, 9 weeks of staying in these ‘pretty poor/squalid’ houses with their ‘tiny gardens’.
As an adult I have the ability to always be aware of the potential danger that a virus can hold.
As an adult I can restrain any impulse I might have to want to go up to my friends and forget the potential for this viral danger.
I’d like to ask you Albert, did you or your children ever live through such a time as this?
Apologies if the children have damaged any of your property, If so, I’m sure you’ll inform the parents, and they will compensate accordingly, and then reprimand the child.
To Gavin, please find a dictionary and look up what squalid means, I expect you’ll be apologising to ALL the residents of the streets named.

Well, I live on one of the council estates in Liphook of which no-one has ever had a good word for. If Weylands is squalid what does that make my house?

There are probably lots of good words, but none are printable!

My view of kids playing is you try and get them to understand social distancing, not always possible, but as a "normal" person, I am more worried about the effects on the children's mental welfare if this lockdown goes on much longer.

Some kids will cope fine, others won't, and a video chat for a child isn't much of a substitute for contact with their friends.

Hi Gavin as a matter of interest to myself and my friends and neighbours who have all lived here between 15 and 30 years no one can recall anyone by the name of Gavin and family ever living here

I agree with Albert. We also had many kids running on our driveway and near near our cars. It’s not appropriate at the moment and their parents are irresponsible letting them. Who is supervising this large group of kids? Do the social distancing rules not apply to them like Mr Cummings? Council estate or no council estate it should be the same rules for everyone including kids,

Darren G, I was at school with a Darren G. Were you at Bohunt from 1978 to 1983 by any chance?

Re: Kids Playing outside
- Darren G (25th May 2020 07:56:07)

Just a coincidence D, I was bought up further afield, where kids were allowed to be noisy and actively kicked out of the house all day and fed on a lump of coal for dinner. ;)
