To Parish Residents,

Pleased be advised that play areas at Stone Recreation Ground and Waterstone Park, and public toilets at Stone Recreation Ground will be closed with immediate effect due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

This is felt necessary due to the numbers of people still congregating in these areas despite government directives to social-distance, and because it is not possible for these areas to be effectively cleaned to prevent potential transmission of the virus.

Playgrounds will be padlocked until further notice and we kindly request that respect is given to the closure of these facilities until it it safe for them to re-open.

The welfare and safety of our residents is our main priority. We are currently reviewing and liaising with local groups to see how the council can best provide support to local residents during this challenging time. Further details regarding this will be published this week.

Kind regards

Stone Parish Council
