The Cookhill Parish playground, located off Church Lane, has recently undergone extensive development to provide a wider range of facilities, which are suitable for all ages, including the popular adult exercise equipment.
The Parish Council Playing Fields are currently closed until further notice, due to the current Coronavirus restrictions.
Following the latest Government briefing on the 23rd June it was announced that playgrounds and outdoor gyms can reopen, with the further easing of Lockdown restrictions, from the 4th July.
To safely open the playground Cookhill Parish Council must adhere to strict safety guidelines to ensure the safety of both members of the public and Council employees. To ensure that we are ready to safely reopen a Risk Assessment will be carried out. We will also make sure that all the appropriate safety measures are properly in place – this includes the installation of hand sanitising stations, ensuring members of the public can safely social distance, plus thorough and regular deep cleaning of the equipment. Until these measures are firmly in place the Cookhill Parish Council Playground and Playing Fields will, unfortunately, have to remain CLOSED.
This decision has been a difficult one to make but the safety of our community is of the utmost importance and we ask that members of the public respect the closed notices and do not attempt to enter the playground until such time as it is safely open. This decision has been taken in line with recommendations from Wychavon District Council, who are advising the Parish Council on safely reopening the playground, and our insurance company.
