Nanny likes to come out with statements on "the bleedin' obvious" at times.
Don't know why, maybe she just likes the sound of her own voice?
Anyhoo, her so called "health experts" have just issued guidance on how to use trampolines.
Now that's a useful way to spend taxpayers' money!
The "experts" have noted that people can injure themselves if they fall off a trampoline, or if they jump into a tree.
Therefore physiotherapists have said that equipment should be set up away from trees and fences.
Those of you who are too dimwitted to appreciate the risks of falling off one of these things, or of bouncing up into trees and other assorted overhangs, should read the advice given out by Nanny's experts:
-Set the trampoline up in hole, so falling distance is not as great
-Keep it free of fences and trees
-Ensure springs, hooks and frame all covered by padding
-Place cushioning, such as wood chips or padding around trampoline
-Children should always be supervised
-Only one person should use it at a time
-Children under six should not use them
-Do not exit trampoline by bouncing
-Remove all jewellery
Got that everyone!
Call me stupid, but isn't the above list just plain simple common sense?
As Chartered Society of Physiotherapy representative, Peta Smith, said:
Those of you who are just too stupid to use one of these things, without a book of instructions, should visit the ROSPA trampoline factsheet.
