Coronavirus Update

Due to the latest government restrictions to tackle the Coronavirus, the skatepark is now closed until these restrictions are lifted (hopefully on Wed 2 December 2020). From 5 November all indoor and outdoor skateparks have been ordered to close. Please see Skateboard England's advice . The childrens' playground is allowed to remain open - see the Parish Council's risk assessment for its safe opening. .

The Parish Council advises that:

The equipment is not being routinely cleaned

Each piece of equipment is only to be used by one household or ‘bubble’ at a time (we appreciate that the definition of a bubble is changing rapidly)

Adults, and children where possible, should continue to maintain social distancing advice in accordance with government guidelines

Please bring hand sanitiser and clean hands before and after using equipment

Please use your own wipes to clean points of contact before use

Please do not consume food or drink in the playground
