Recreation Survey August 2020
Many thanks to everyone who replied to the recent survey, with all their feedback and offers of help for the future. A summary of the findings is given below.
Health and Safety
Work is continuing in response to the recent fire safety risk assessment. The action plan is given at the end of the assessment report below, but groups interested in booking the facilities may still get in touch for a discussion via firstname.lastname@example.org
Please see below guidance and a form for making group bookings for the pavilion, outdoor courts or recreation ground. Government guidance can change at short notice – for example, indoor or outdoor gatherings of more than six people are banned from Monday 14th September, but there are different regulations for team sports. Please check the latest Government guidance before booking, though you can always contact the parish council to ask for advice.
Reopening the play areas
We are pleased to announce that following our risk assessment and consultation with parents, we have now opened the 2 playgrounds on the recreation ground.
For safety information please refer to the signs at the entrance to the play areas. A copy of those signs and of the play equipment safety report are posted below.
