Regrettably, in view of the Government's new COVID-19 lockdown regulations and having carried out a full risk assessment, the MUGA sports facility is closed until further notice. The Parish Council took the opportunity to bring in contractor Trevor May to clean off the unpleasant graffiti recently sprayed on the playing surface. This act of vandalism has been reported to the Police and it required specialist cleaning to avoid damaging the newly laid surface. With thanks to Lady Joanna Thornhill Primary School for supplying the water. During this lockdown period the Parish Council aims to install improved lighting in the MUGA.

Under the Government lockdown regulations, the small Play Area and Jungle can remain open; and the Parish Council has ordered new lighting for the Play Area. However, during this extremely serious and significantly increased new wave of COVID-19 infection rates, parents are strongly urged to always observe social distancing and use the hand gel provided in the play areas. The allotments and public toilets will remain open as they are compliant with the COVID-19 lockdown regulations.
