Charlbury's Children's Playgrounds

There is a rumour in the town that our playgrounds (Nine Acres and Ticknell Piece) are open again. Sorry to say: this is not true.

The notices saying that the playgrounds are closed have been removed by persons unknown. The Town Council will replace these as soon as possible.

The Town Council is subject to government regulatory direction and, at present, this has not changed - green spaces are open but playgrounds are not. The Council has no discretion in this matter. The reasoning is that the Corvid 19 virus can remain infective on hard surfaces for many hours.

The Council recognises the frustration that the closures cause for parents with young children, particularly during this warm weather.
