PLAY SAFE STAY SAFE
This Playground is not supervised, and equipment is not regularly cleaned.
- If anyone in the household is displaying COVID-19 symptoms then do not visit

- Only one child is allowed on each piece of equipment at a time
- Please try to only have one parent, guardian or carer with each child to limit the possible spread of infection
- Consider using a face covering, but Government guidance states they aren’t to be used by children under the age of three
- All rubbish, including disposable face coverings or gloves, should be put in the litter bins or taken home to dispose of
- Wash hands or use hand sanitiser before and after visiting the park
- People should consider wiping or cleansing equipment before use

HALL USE: As restrictions ease we are planning on re-opening the hall from the 6th July. Following Government guidance and advice from ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) there will be many restrictions in place. Hopefully, as time goes on, these will be reduced.
We are still unable to take bookings for parties etc. We look forward to the time when we can open fully.
CHILDREN’S PLAY AREA: The Play Area should be able to open from the 4th July.
During this closure period we have been able to replace some of the playground equipment and carry our repairs and renovation. The work had been on hold due to lockdown but is now nearly complete. Some renovation work is still being carried out but the major work has been completed.
RECREATION GROUND: It has been good to see individuals and now small groups making use of the field for exercise. Both the tennis club and the croquet club are now open, but with restrictions to numbers and following social distancing guidance.
Please continue to stay alert and keep safe.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement tonight (Friday 20th March) the Village Hall is closed for social events until further notice. It remains open for appropriate business use.
The Recreation Ground remains open for public use (but see the notice below about the play area upgrades). If using the Recreation Ground please observe relevant social distancing precautions.
Next week (around Wednesday 25th March) contractors are due to start replacing the old swings and slide by brand new ones. Once that is done a separate contractor will be repairing all the Junior Play Area wetpour surfacing.
We will then be having the junior multiplay equipment repainted and repaired and we will then have a fine play area in great shape for many years to come.
The Hall remains available for all users.
The Village Hall is still operating but most regular groups are now cancelled until the end of May.
The situation will be kept under ongoing review.
A message to Kington Langley Parishioners. Martin and Nikki Casey have volunteered to manage the villagers’ efforts to support each other through the current situation regarding Coronavirus and to be a point of contact for general information and help.
