However, you can exercise or meet in a public, outdoors space with people you live with, your support bubble (or as part of a childcare bubble), or with one other person. You should minimise time spent outside your home. When around other people, stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household - meaning the people you live with - or your support bubble. Where this is not possible, stay 1 metre apart with extra precautions (e.g. wearing a face covering).
You CAN still use the Children’s Playgrounds and Play Equipment. Please see the individual signs on these facilities.
You CAN NOT use the Outdoor Sports Court (MUGA), Tennis Courts or the Green Gym. Please see the individual signs on these facilities.
You should not use the Recreation Ground if you are showing coronavirus symptoms, or if you or any of your household are self-isolating.
