Re-opening of the Play area, Recreation Ground

Social distancing? Social distancing aims to reduce social interaction between people to minimise the opportunity for transmission of COVID-19. Following a review of social distancing guidance, 2 metres or 1 metre with risk mitigations (where 2 metres is not viable) are acceptable. All owners or operators of playgrounds should consider how to put in place measures to support social distancing such as; signs to remind users of the need for, and adherence to, social distancing in accordance with existing government guidelines. In implementing these measures, Hayle Town Council acknowledge that adults and children with certain conditions will find social distancing difficult. It is also recognised that adherence to social distancing between individuals and households can be particularly difficult in a playground setting. This will mean that other ways of minimising transmission risk have also been considered, and where possible implemented and communicated to the parents, guardians and carers, who should remain aware of the residual risk. Hayle Town Council have undertaken this duty primarily with your and your children’s safety in mind. What’s Changed? When the park re-opens on 4 July there will be signs positioned at each entrance reminding everybody of the importance of hand washing, keeping socially distant and some further actions that will benefit all users if followed. These include requests that you closely supervise your children and try to follow all the Government guidelines associated with face touching, sneezing and hand hygiene. To try and reduce the numbers within the park we ask that where possible you abide by the limit of 1 parent, guardian or carer to 1 child whilst in the play park. Again, to reduce numbers within the play park, we also ask that no food or beverages are consumed in the play area. Picnics etc. can be undertaken on the grassed area outside of the play park. Please remember to put all the rubbish in the bins or take it home with you. Whilst in the park, you will notice that certain pieces of play equipment are no longer available. Again, this is to allow for safe use of the remaining equipment. As soon as the Government allow, we will return the missing items of play equipment. Hayle Town Council want all users of the park to have a safe and enjoyable time whilst playing so with this in mind please read the signs, follow the advice and guidelines and if you think the park is busy, return at a different time or a later date.
