Children's Play Equipment & Outdoor Gym
The Government announced
that Play Ares and Outdoor Gyms could be re-opened on 4th July 2020 and produced
guidance on how these should be safely re-opened and
managed effectively to enable their use, whilst minimising the transmission
risk of COVID-19.
The full guidance is available at:
The guidance includes the requirement for the Parish Council to carry out an appropriate COVID-19 risk assessment, which we have done.
Our Risk Assessment takes each of the Key Principles as set out in the guidance and assesses whether or not the Council can put practical arrangements in place for the Play Areas and Outdoor Gym.
On the basis of this assessment The Green Gym has re-opened with signage about what to do/not to do when using the equipment, including arrows indicating a one way, clockwise system around the main Big Rig. The Tennis Courts and MUGA have already been re-opened.
The Play Areas have also been re-opened with measures in place to promote social distancing on certain items. Please follow the signage on what to do/not to do when using the equipment. It is there to keep you and your family safe.
Remember: - You should not use the Recreation Ground if you are showing coronavirus
