We are pleased today to receive clear guidance from Robert Jenrick, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities & Local Government instructing all councils to open all of their parks. We will now put into place measures to ensure John Coles Park will be open early next week.
The children’s play area, SplashPad, tennis courts, refreshment kiosk, MUGA, bandstand, sensory garden will remain closed or cordoned off.
Please follow social distancing instructions at all times.
Chippenham Town Council recently made the difficult decision to close John Coles Park in response to the Global Pandemic. John Coles Park is a gated park which gave us the opportunity to be proactive in our support of government guidance in the measures we can take to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by limiting the possibilities for people to gather and take part in activities which go against social distancing advice.
