Closure of Council play equipment, tennis courts, Skate Park & MUGA

It was hoped to officially open the new play area created at Bill Baileys on 23 March 2020.  However, in view of the health crisis unfolding around the Covid-19 Virus, the Parish Council decided to postpone the event because it was considered that the new play equipment would act like a magnet to youngsters who would flock there to try out the new kit.  This is contrary to government advice on social distancing and staying at home as much as possible. 

Subsequently, the Government has issued further guidance and directed that individuals should not congregate or use play equipment - including tennis courts and skate parks and that these be closed off.

We are obviously sorry to disappoint local youngsters and users of the Council's facilities but the wellbeing of our community is top of the Parish Councils agenda.  

Take care and stay safe.
