Playground

Published: 22nd August 2020

The Playground is now open after sterling efforts by a number of volunteers on a wet evening to thoroughly clean and check all the equipment and fences.

All users should maintain social distancing and must provide their own sanitiser and wipes for use before and after touching the equipment. Any rubbish should be taken home since we cannot safely manage bin clearance.

Please note that DOGS are not allowed in the Playground or Playing Field.
