BAMPTON PLAY PARKS

It is with great reluctance that the Parish Council has decided to close Bampton’s play parks. This decision was not taken lightly and only after lengthy consideration

The Council had to balance the benefit to the community of keeping them open - which everyone appreciates - with the dangers to the Council’s staff, who have to keep them clean and safe, as well as the safety of children, teenagers and their families. In the end, we felt that government lockdown restrictions to lower the spread of Covid 19 are paramount - it is simply not safe for the playparks to operate with infection rates so high.

We appreciate how disappointing this will be for many villagers - including members of the Parish Council and their children and grandchildren - but felt we had no choice given the virulence of the new strain of virus.

However, don’t forget the recreation ground remains open and provides a large amount of space for families to enjoy while keeping safe. It is a short walk or bike ride for all residents of Bampton, but for those who prefer to drive we have plenty of onsite parking. Please remember if you do visit, to pick up your litter and stick to social distancing to keep everyone safe. Additionally, Sandford Field is always open and accessible centrally.
