Following the ROSPA reports for both the Little Bourton and Great Bourton playgrounds, the Great Bourton playground is now safe to open with the necessary regulations and risk assessment having been completed. As well as some general maintenance, the equipment has been cleaned as far a possible and antibacterial spray has been applied. The goal post will be conditioned and repainted before the end of October. The Little Bourton playground still requires some remedial work as reported in the Parish Council September meeting minutes which you can see here.
The new regulations are shown below for the Great Bourton Playground:
Allowing your children to use the playground is at your own risk and we ask that you do not visit if you or any member of your family is experiencing symptoms of Covid-19
- Children must be accompanied by an adult and be supervised at all times.
- Parents and carers should bring hand sanitiser gel or wipes to clean children’s hands particularly at the beginning and end of play.
- It is advisable to wipe touch points before use.
- Children should be reminded not to touch their faces and to cough or sneeze into a tissue or arm when a tissue is not available.
- Adults should remind children not to put their mouths on equipment or their hands in their mouths.
- Social distancing should be adhered to at all times and there should never be more than 3 children on each piece of equipment at any one time. If the playground is busy, please come back later or remain at a safe distance until the playground is less busy.
- No food or drink should be consumed in the playground and all litter should be taken home.
These measures are all designed to help keep everyone safe from coronavirus, protect the NHS and ultimately save lives.
