Pitching for support

I can’t help thinking that petitioning the Prime Minister to relay a full sized pitch at Greendown Community School so that Swindon Hockey Club (and other sports clubs) will continue to be able to play there, is probably not the most effective use of prime ministerial time. Whilst it is clearly very bad news for the hockey club, to describe it as ‘an outrageous abuse of local funds’ is rather out of proportion, especially as the current pitches are past their prime and the school is getting several new pitches built. The claim used to back up the petition ‘Swindon Hockey Club – one of Swindon’s premier hockey clubs.’ is, after a little thought, quite modest.
