Statement on Coronavirus

Updated 27th November

In order to reduce the spread of Coronavirus and protect lives, we must all follow the Government’s guidelines in relation to COVID-19.

For the latest information, please refer to the Government website: www.gov.uk/coronavirus

Please find our latest updates below;

Use of the parks

At all times, you should observe social distancing guidelines when you are outside your home. Until Wednesday 2nd December you must only visit the parks with members of your household, bubble or one other person. From Thursday 3rd December, the rule of six applies in our parks, which means you must not socialise in a group of more than 6 people.

If you feel unwell, or anyone in your household has symptoms, we ask that you please do not attend any of our parks and follow the Government advice to self-isolate.

Events and activities

Most of our smaller events and activities will be able to resume from Thursday 3rd December.

Please refer to our what’s on page for the latest updates as some events have been cancelled – ticket holders will be contacted in these instances.

Play areas and outdoor gym equipment

Play areas remain open with some restrictions in place. Outdoor gym equipment across the parks will be closed until Thursday 3rd December when they can reopen in the line government guidance. Find out more about the restrictions in place here.

Our work and our staff

The majority of our landscape maintenance work, which is essential work, will continue. We continue to follow the latest government advice regarding safe working practices.

Firewood is still available with new procedures in place for collection and delivery. Explore our range and enquire for more details. 

Our Volunteers

Our group volunteering activities are suspended until Wednesday 2nd December. Ranger and Warden volunteering duties are permitted to continue during lockdown 2.0 if the individual feels safe and comfortable to do so and they are not having to self-isolate.
