Great Coxwell Parish Council has discussed the advice and recommendations issued by the Government, councils and relevant bodies on social distancing and access to parks and green spaces.
The play equipment on our "Doorstep Green" is not separated from the general village green area. When the initial social distancing guidance was issued, the Parish Council posted signs asking people not to use the equipment. Unfortunately, these signs were ignored and thus the Council decided to close the area in order to ensure that access to their facilities did not compromise social distancing guidelines from the Government.
Given this situation and with consideration of the extended period during which we as a Council have not been able to perform our usual weekly safety checks and litter picks of the area (due to Councillors' own need to be shielding themselves), we have decided that the whole of Great Coxwell park will remain closed during this period of social distancing.
We hope that this does not compromise your ability to exercise locally and intend to reopen the park again just as soon as it is safe and reasonable to do so.
