Bicester’s play areas will start re-opening on Saturday 4 July after the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Bicester Town Council looks after 60+ play areas so it will take a little time before all are fully opened.
Play areas in the larger parks have reopened Saturday 4th July and smaller play areas across the town will follow in the next few weeks.
The work involves checking that the equipment is in good order and putting up signs to make sure everyone takes responsibility to use the equipment safely.
We are unable to monitor or clean all play areas on a frequent basis and are therefore asking parents and carers to take responsibility.
▪️don’t use play equipment if you or if anyone in your household or support bubble has coronavirus or is showing symptoms
▪️those with health vulnerabilities should avoid using these confined, busy spaces at this time
▪️children’s hands should be washed/sanitised before and after using the equipment and you may wish to wipe it down before and after use
▪️supervise children closely at all times to maintain social distancing – we recommend at least two metres
▪️parents and carers must also maintain social distancing in these confined spaces
▪️the play areas will be in high demand so please be patient. Don’t enter any play enclosures that are so busy that social distancing will not possible.
If you are using any green spaces for daily exercise please adhere to the guidelines on social distancing, maintaining a distance of 2 metres (6ft), alone or with members of your household and wash your hands as soon as you get home.
To report any incident please contact Bicester Town Council at firstname.lastname@example.org
