Lydiard Park really is a delightful place, set in a glorious parkland and purchased by Swindon Borough Council in 1943, more can be found about it here.
Some of us concerned about the future of the Croft playing fields, and spreading the word as widely as possible about the council 's attempts to lease out the Croft Leisure Centre, fields, car park, and originally lane leading to it, on a 99 year lease, went along to meet Hilary Benn to hear his views on how we could protect these precious assets.
It was a glorious day, and we hung around the car park for a while and looked at the information board with an immense number of sponsors displayed on it.
There were masses of coloured horses, they may be overcrowded, but they appear to be in good condition.
I took a couple of photos of people playing in the wide open spaces, but all you can see if wide open spaces so I only included one:
