Government guidance on using parks and open spaces

The Government recently published a guidance document that focused on keeping people safe, as and when the restrictions are relaxed and urban spaces become busier. This has been supplemented by new guidance on how to safely open play areas. If you follow the link, it is clear that this is not as easy as it looks for a small organisation, like SPC, with limited resources. A lot of preparation and quite a bit of expenditure is required if our play areas are to be opened, so please bear with us whilst this is carefully thought through.
