One reader thinks that family days out are becoming beyond the means of many households. What do you think?

I am writing to you in the hope that the paper will do a comprehensive survey of admission prices at the summer holiday attractions around Norfolk.

The cost to families for a day out are high and already impossible for low income families and are becoming beyond even middle income families.

Admission prices are high and there are other hidden costs at attractions — extra for rides, feed for animals, and, if families do not take picnics then food is expensive.

Sadly, many children in our county are now being deprived of fun and education because of this.

Where better to publicise and discuss this situation than the paper.
