Closure of play parks 

Closure of play parks 

All Parish Council events and meetings have been cancelled, including:

  • Spring Clean (Skip Day)
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • 75 VE Day Celebration
  • Parish Council Meetings

Closure of play parks The Play Park, Skate Park and Zip Wire within Great Yeldham are now closed until further notice to maintain social distancing and to help limit the spread of the Coronavirus.

Public spaces will remain open for individuals and households to exercise once a day, but if you visit the public spaces, please properly follow the social distancing guidance from the Government.

We are in the process of putting signage up in all areas to make people aware of these closures.

We’re sure you will understand that we have to put the safety of our community first, particularly our vulnerable residents. Making children keep to the recommended two metres distance in a busy play area is difficult. The play equipment, which is used by a large number of small hands, is unable to be disinfected and so represents a high cross-contamination risk of the virus.

Our decision also means we are doing what we can to protect our NHS from coming under pressure.

We will update you when the play areas open again.

Thank you so much for your understanding and patience during this time.
