Following the closure of the Sir Bobby Robson Play Park on the 8th September a meeting has taken place between the Parish Council, County Council and Police as promised. I am pleased to announce that it has been agreed that the Park will reopen from today, Monday 14th September at 3pm. Please be aware it is your responsibility to adhere to the current Government guidelines with regards to Covid-19. The area will be monitored by all authorities involved and will be closed to the public between the hours of 7pm and 9am daily, reduced to 6pm in November. We kindly request that children and parents prepare to exit the area without incident and respect the persons attending to close. Please leave the park clean and tidy. We are seeking volunteers, aged 18+, to work in groups of two, to close the Park on an evening. Interested parties can contact email@example.com or telephone 0191 3736687. Further damage, thoughtless and reckless behaviour may result in closure of the Park until Spring 2021 and criminal proceedings brought against perpetrators.
