No Dogs in the Rec or Churchcroft Open Space and No Adults to play on the equipment in Churchcroft play area

No Dogs in the Rec or Churchcroft Open Space

It has recently been brought to our attention that sadly on more than one occasion, dogs have been either in the Rec or inside of the play area in Churchcroft. Please note that dogs are able to walk through Churchcroft open space on the footpath on a lead, but we request that they are kept off of the grass. More »

The Parish Council would like to remind residents that these are children's play areas and dogs are not allowed.

No Adults to play on the equipment in Churchcroft Play Area

A Polite reminder that the play area at Churchcroft is for Primary School aged Children or younger.

We ask that no adults play on the equipment to avoid injuries and/or damage. Should the play equipment break, it's not only a potential danger to children visiting the park but would cost a lot of money to repair or replace and this isn't a good use of council taxpayer's money.

Sadly, one such recent incident resulted in Parish Councillors being threatened with violence, when they politely asked a couple of adults to stop playing on the roundabout.

The Parish Council won't tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour to its Councillors or within any social media posts.

Thanking you in advance for your understanding and co-operation in these matters. » Less
