I saw this story yesterday and just laughed it off as being one of those stupidities of modern life.
Plans for an ice rink were scrapped after fears were raised that it could become a child grooming ground for paedophiles.
However, I now realise that it\’s really really stupid, not just stupid or really stupid.
The ice rink was planned for a temporary floodlit area next to Bath Sports and Leisure Centre, and would have been monitored by CCTV and security staff.
Right, OK, know where that is, right next to the rugby club etc.
Staff and parents from St John’s raised concerns at a safety advisory group meeting last week about \’grooming’ by paedophiles.
OK, I also know where that is, my brother went there….hang on a minute, the damn things is on the other side of the river from the school.
What are they talking about? That some paedo is going to look over the river, up 20 feet and through a thick wall into the playground?
