Bath sign campaign to discourage smoking in play areas

27th December 2013 | No Smoking Signs

A campaign to discourage people in Bath from smoking near children’s play areas has resulted in a series of signs being put up.

Bath’s new no smoking signs read: “Please don’t smoke where we play.” The signs have gone up in 25 parks so far, and there are plans to expand the campaign in 2014.

This move is part of a national initiative to reduce the number of smokers in the UK. Bath and North East Somerset Council has chosen to target play areas first of all, to cut down on the number of parents and carers exposing children to cigarette smoke.

The council has signed up to the Local Government Declaration on Tobacco Control, and has committed to work with local communities to cut down on smoking in the area.

Simon Allen, chair of the Bath and North East Somerset Health and Wellbeing Board, said: “We’re committed to protecting children and young people from becoming addicted to tobacco, and to keeping illegal tobacco out of our communities. A key initiative is to make all our play parks smoke free.”ADNFCR-2754-ID-801676395-ADNFCR
