Services and Amenities
The play area is located on Richmond Place, and has a variety of play equipment for children. We ask that children are supervised at all times whilst in the play area. There is no smoking permitted in this area. Please contact the Parish Clerk if you have any concerns.
COVID GUIDANCE - The play areas remain open, children are allowed to play on the play equipment, but the council is keen to remind people that social distancing continues to apply.
Both children and adults should continue to stay 2M apart from people outside their bubble where ever possible, avoid touching their face and not share equipment. They are also being asked not to eat or drink in the play areas and to stay away if they or anyone in their household feels unwell.
As it isn’t possible for us to keep the play equipment sanitised, visitors are being advised to bring their own wipes to clean the equipment alongside their hand sanitiser. Any used wipes should be placed in the bin provided or taken home if they are full.
A risk assessment of the play area has been carried out and the equipment is regularly inspected. Please follow the guidance and stay safe.
