PORTSMOUTH schoolchildren are asking adults to help make the city a healthier place with its first smoke-free play park.

Pupils from St John's Cathedral Catholic Primary School joined councillors and members of the city’s public health team today to unveil a new sign encouraging people not to smoke within the confines of Landport Playground on Arundel Road.

Year 3 student, Marsela Pervataj, eight, who designed the sign as part of a school competition said: ‘I didn’t know they were going to choose mine, I was amazed.

‘It’s bad for both the children and adults if people are smoking and the kids might get sick from it. It’s important for the children to have fun.’
