Unfortunately, the Council have to announce the closure of the skateboard park and the MUGA (multi-use games area) at Judith’s Field to comply with HM Government restrictions following Parliament’s approval of the four week lockdown from 5th November until 2nd December. 2020

We are asking all residents for their help in ensuring that the restrictions are observed.  Please may we ask that residents of all ages to comply with the rules so that we all help to suppress the spread of Covid-19, to save lives and to protect the NHS.

We appreciate that this is difficult when one facility which is open, is next to another which is closed, but the guidance issued by the Government, Skateboard England and Sport England is very clear.  Whilst children’s play areas remain open, skateparks are closed and we have been advised that MUGAs should also be closed as they are classed as outdoor basketball courts.

Our parks remain open for personal exercise, subject to compliance with Government guidelines.  Visitors to the play areas are asked to note the conditions of use which have been introduced since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.
