One at a time, please: Canterbury workmen at new Toddlers' Cove play park fail basic grammar rule with wrongly placed apostrophe

By Alex Claridge

Bungling workmen failed a basic rule of English grammar when they made a sign for a new Canterbury play park.

In an embarrassing gaffe, workers wrongly placed the apostrophe after the "r", grammatically leaving the Toddlers' Cove play park in the ownership of a single toddler.

Graham Weaver, of St Andrew's Close, was appalled by the poor use of language.

He said: "I hope the toddler in question invites some friends or he or she will be very lonely playing alone.

"Still, these days, what's an apostrophe here or there – or even nowhere?"

The play park is part of a £1million improvement scheme in Canterbury

Earlier this month, Canterbury City Council unveiled the play park, which was built as part of a

£1million improvement scheme for Toddlers’ Cove and the Westgate Gardens.
