The Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has many implications, even for a small village like ours. Given that at least some of the village children will no longer be attending school or nursery for the foreseeable future, they may need some distraction, so the Parish Council intends to keep the play-park open unless we receive specific advice or instruction to the contrary.
All the social distancing measures that are being recommended more generally need to be adhered to when using the play-park. It is up to the parents of children using the play-park to ensure that this happens.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) can survive for several days, particularly on metal and plastic surfaces such as those used in the construction of the play equipment. The Parish Council cannot offer any assurance that the equipment will be virus free and parents must make their own risk/benefit judgement regarding the safety of their own children if they allow them to use it. The Parish Council cannot accept any liability for your decisions as parents.
If the situation changes, the gates may be locked without further announcement.
