Rampton Village Hall Closure & Pinder Park Restrictions

Village Hall Closure: Due With effect from Noon on the 17th March Rampton Village Hall will be closed to all user groups and for bookings for the next 12 weeks or until there is an update from the Govt. Following the Prime Ministers announcement today that due to Covid19 that "Now is the time for everyone to stop non-essential contact and to stop all non-essential travel, this includes avoiding pubs, clubs, groups, theatres and restaurants and other such social venues for around 12 weeks." Additionally, "people must self-isolate for 14 days if they live with anyone who has any symptoms - a high temperature or a new cough." Public Health England chief medical officer prof Chris Whitty said: "The group of people who we would want to take this advice particularly seriously are older people above 70, people who in adult life would normally be advised to have the flu vaccination.

"So these are people with chronic diseases such as chronic heart disease or chronic kidney disease, and also - as a precautionary measure because we are early in our understanding and we want to be sure - women who are pregnant." I am sorry to convey this news to the people of Rampton & Woodbeck. As soon as any other official information from the Govt or National Association of Local Councils is known I will post updates. Stay safe an well everyone.

Pinder Park Restrictions: As per the Prime Ministers announcement, for at least the next 3 weeks, the outdoor gym, all the play equipment, including the MUGA should not be used, the park open space can technically be used for your once a day exercise, but no more than 2 people of the same household. "Play areas and other assets, such as outdoor gyms, MUGAs etc.


Signs should be placed up stating that the play areas will be closed per government instructions and that safety checks will not be carried out during this period. take a photo of closing all the play areas, for two reasons, one to post up on social media to make residents aware and secondly to evidence it should people violate the closure." I feel terrible again saying this, as I did about closing the village hall. Stay safe and well everyone.
