Coronavirus update (covid-19) -  May 2021

Coronavirus restrictions remain in place across England affecting what people can and cannot do.

Our parks are open as normal but we're asking people to continue to follow the government guidelines.

In England, up to 30 people (from any number of households) can meet for recreation and/or exercise – as always, you must keep your distance if you are meeting people not in your household or support/childcare bubble.

Read the full information on what you can and cannot do on the Government's website.

Please check our Facebook page for any further updates before you decide to visit.

Thank you for your co-operation and stay safe.
