You will no doubt have heard the Government’s announcement last night regarding increased restrictions on public movement to help combat the Covid-19 virus. The Government stressed that Parks should remain open but at the same time they indicated that play equipment, skateparks and outdoor gyms etc, should close. The Parish Council has such equipment in Barnes Park and  Winsick Park. Particularly in Barnes Park, the size of the area covered by the equipment is large and practically difficult to effectively cordon off. The Parish Council would request therefore that you ensure as far as possible that your children do not use the equipment. They are of course welcome to use the Park for exercise purposes as per the Government’s instructions. Thankyou for your assistance.
