You can:

  • Meet in groups of up to two households (your support bubble counts as one household) in any location - public or private, indoors or outdoors. You do not always have to meet with the same household - you can meet with different households at different times. However, it remains the case that you should socially distance from anyone not in your household or bubble.
  • When you are outside you can continue to meet in groups of up to six people from different households, following social distancing guidelines

It is VITAL that everyone continues to act responsibly when using the open facilities. The infection rate will increase if people break social distancing rules and gather in large groups.We ask that you play your part and follow the goverment guidelines:

  • You can now exercise alone, with members of your household, or with up to but no more than 5 other people from outside your household while keeping 2 metres apart.
  • Gatherings of more than 6 people are NOT permitted.
  • Social distancing of 2m applies to people outside of your household. If you are playing sport or exercising with people from your own household, the 2 metre rule does not apply.

 YOU MUST OBSERVE THE RULES OF SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL TIMES IN THE PARK & CEMETERY & ALL OTHER FACILITES Our Parks and Open Spaces Team will continue at the moment to carry out litter collections, grass cutting and other such services. These are important and still deemed as essential services that we hope will ensure the town is a clean and pleasant place to live. Please be assured that they are working within Government guidelines of social distancing and would ask that you do not approach them when they are out and about.
