Village Play Areas and Skate Park

Updated 13/5/2020

Following guidance from the Government the Tennis Court/MUGA on Egremont Road is open for sports use subject to following the conditions publised on the gate.

Breaches of the conditions may result in the area being closed again.

The public open spaces are open for excercise and recreation in line with Government guidelines. The Parish Council requires everyone using the open spaces to observe the goverment guidance on social distancing (.gov website).

Unfortunately, due to Government order, all of the play areas and the skate park are still closed until further notice to minimise the spread of coronavirus. As soon as we receive guidance from the Government about opening these facilities it will be reviewed.

If you or anyone in your household are displaying symptoms of coronavirus  you must follow the guidance on self-isolating and not use the public open spaces.
