Reopening of Playground

Dickens Heath PC has not yet reopened the playground, but we are aware that it is being used again. We will therefore endeavour to officially reopen it tomorrow, Monday July 6th. No inspections have been done during lockdown, and so this is our first priority – to ensure that it is safe to use. The Parish Council has completed a Covid-19 risk assessment, and appropriate signage will be erected – some temporarily while permanent signs are ordered. Dickens Heath PC have taken a pragmatic approach – we know that residents and children are desperate to see it reopen. It will not be feasible for us to clean the equipment daily, provide cleansing facilities, nor to provide supervision. We are relying on all of our residents to be responsible, follow current health advice and that on the signs, and keep everyone safe. Thank you
