Friday 27th March 2020

Despite the council closing and locking the gates to the play areas and public spaces and putting up signage, negligent people have removed the signage and opened the gates. This narrow minded act, has put innocent people at huge risk!

The council followed the advice from the government and their insurance company. The gates, benches and equipment pose a contamination risk, Social distancing is not being observed and the social gathering instruction of 2 or more is not being followed.

As the parks are officially closed no maintenance, litter picking or safety inspections can take place, therefore any incidents occurring on these areas will be refuted by the insurance companies during this time.

The parish council will continue to take directive from the government and insurance companies, and will open them when advised it is fit to do so. » Less
