The Parish Council is committed to keeping the play park open during lock down. However this is dependent on users acting safely and responsibly to limit the spread of the virus. The advice is taken from the government guidelines for play parks. If we receive complaints about the guidelines not being followed we will have no option but to close the park to protect the wider community particularly our most vulnerable members.
