The Parish Council has carried out a risk assessment (RISK ASSESSMENT.docx ) in compliance with Government guidelines and as a result we are delighted to announce that the playground in Cherry Street will be reopened this Saturday morning, 4th July.
We have also produced a few non statutory guidance notes for parents, guardians and carers and these are detailed in the playground and here ( Playground Advisory Sheet Covid-19 )
Managing any potential risk is the responsibility of each and every one of us, therefore all responsible adults are requested to follow these guidelines and to cooperate with each other to ensure maximum safety from the spread of infection whilst accessing the playground. If you become aware of these rules being ignored, please report it ASAP to the Parish Council.
The Parish Council is under no obligation to keep the playground open and will close it, temporarily, should it become clear that the level of acceptable risk of the spread of Coronavirus is too great.
A sanitising spray dispenser has been placed near the entrance, but we cannot guarantee this will always be full. Therefore adults are asked to bring their own hand sanitiser gel or wipes to clean their children’s hands particularly at the beginning and end of play and where possible to clean touch points on equipment before and after use.
It has had a spring clean and is looking better than ever before. Mike has done a great job caring for the grass and ground cover whilst closed and used the time to safely remove all the ivy from the wooden fences. Then the Dewhurst family volunteered to repaint the wooden fence mural which Rachel originally created over twenty years ago. In the process they took the opportunity to paint the blank far end fence as well with fun images, including a rainbow to reflect the sign of the times. They have done a brilliant job and a big thank goes to Emma, Hannah, Zoe and of course Rachel from the village.
