Residents will have seen the Government announcement that playgrounds can re-open on 4th July. However, the guidelines for how the playgrounds should be managed to reduce the possibilities of Covid-19 being passed between users are still very strict.
The Parish Council has taken advice from its insurers who have stated that unless the Government guidelines can be implemented in full, playgrounds should remain closed. The council’s limited resources makes adherence to the guidelines impossible, so it is with regret that it has decided that the play areas in the village will remain closed for the time being, and it will not be carrying out its weekly inspections.
Anyone using the play areas does so at their own risk.
