Scrubland Squabble (Buaireadh sa Pàirc)



Objective: Get the local people to agree how best to spend the money the council have given to make further improvements to the park. Not everyone feels the same about having a skate park, a café or a wildlife area.

Toby, a boy who plays in the park, wants:
• a skate park
• wildlife areas
• litter bins
• food facilities.

Smu, the mother of young children, wants:
• new plant flowers and shrubs for the park
