Covid-19 Parks&Allotments

In line with the current Government and NHS guidance on social distancing and to help stop the spread of coronavirus Covid-19 we would remind all residents of the following important messages in relation to playgrounds/playparks, parks and our allotment.


Playgrounds/Playparks

To help reduce the potential spread of coronavirus (COVID 19) please do not use play areas or equipment. 
Inspection and maintenance of play equipment and safety surfaces is now suspended as services deal with emergency and essential works only.


Parks

To help reduce the potential spread of coronavirus (COVID 19) please do not use parks to congregate in large groups. Government advice is to exercise in small family groups while observing social distancing and hygiene and to exercise outside for only a short period (one hour) a day. 

Parks Maintenance Update (Tuesday 19 May)
From week beginning Monday 18 May, some seasonal maintenance services will recommence, including grass cutting and herbicide treatment in parks.  This is a phased return and the tasks will be undertaken using a reduced number of employees so timescales and frequencies will reflect this revised way of working.


Rosebank Allotment

To help reduce the potential spread of coronavirus (COVID19) please observe public health advice on social distancing and hygiene if using your allotment at Rosebank to exercise. Government advice is to remain at home and to exercise outside for only a short period (one hour) a day.

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding in these challenging times.  We all have a responsibility to follow the guidance to stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect our communities.
