Opening of Francis Road Playing Field and Childrens Play Areas
The Government has relaxed the restrictions on use of play equipment and adult gyms as well as sports areas and skateparks. We will be opening Francis Road Playing Field and the council's play areas on Saturday 4th July 2020. In prepartion for this our staff have been giving the equipment a thoroughly good clean and checking that it is functioning safely. The toilets at Francis Road will also be open at that time.
For your own safety and that of others, we do ask that if you, or anyone in your household, are displaying symptoms that you remain in isolation and don't use the playing field or play areas. If not, then we hope that you enjoy using the facilities whilst remembering to maintain social distance.
Whilst we will be cleaning daily, we cannot guarantee that hard surfaces will be germ free. You may wish to use disinfectant wipes on hard surfaces which you or your family may touch and dispose of those wipes in the rubbish bins provided. Always remember to wash your hands frequently especially before and after play and try and avoid touching your face.
We hope that you enjoy being able to enjoy spending time at Francis Road Playing Field and Church Road Play area. We anticipate that initially there may be a lot of demand to use these areas and ask that you are considerate of other families who may wish to use them as well.
There will be a parish council Planning Committee meeting at 10.00am on the 7th of July and a Parish Council meeting at 11.00am on the 8th July.. The agendas for these meetings will be available on the website. Both of these meeting be held on the Zoom video conferencing site.
If you wish to attend either of these meetings you can email the Clerk on email@example.com to register. You will then be provided with details about the meeting and how to access it. If you are unable to attend then you can still email or write in with any views or comments at the above email and it will be raised in the public forum section of the agenda.
