Play areas are re-opening from July 4th

Newport Pagnell Town Council have announced that play areas will be re-opening from 4th July 2020. Additional precautions have had to take place due Covid-19 which are:

  • Please wash your hands after visiting the play area and bring sanitiser with you to use regularly while at the playground.
  • Please give each other room and keep socially distanced from others. If there are more children in the play area than there are pieces of equipment, please go home and return later. No one over the age of 7 in any fenced play area.
  • We recommend the use of face masks when using play areas.
  • Please keep socially distanced when using benches.
  • To ensure everyone gets a turn please restrict your use of the play area to no more than 45 minutes.
  • Please dispose of any rubbish sensibly.

The Town Council has spray washed all playgrounds during the shut down period, but obviously cannot guarantee that there will be no risk of Covid-19 at any time. Please take these precautionary measures.
