Play Equipment Closed

Following the Parish Council meeting held on 15th July, the difficult decision to keep the play equipment closed was made.

It is not feasible for Salford Priors Parish Council to fully meet the mitigation measures required at this time to maintain the safe use of the play equipment.

I am sure you will all understand that the Parish Council takes its responsibility for the playground and the health and safety of its users extremely seriously.

Whilst the play equipment remains out of use the playing field remains open for general leisure activities, we urge all users to continue to maintain social distancing at all times.

Please be assured the Parish Council will keep this under constant review

Many thanks for your understanding.

Salford Priors Parish Council ask that you respect these rules.  Do not use the play equipment and only use the area for exercise, remembering to stay 2m away from other people who are not members of your household.

The Council depends on the participation of residents to make its work effective and relies on them to provide its membership.

The Council generally meets at 7pm on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, except August at the Memorial Hall, Salford Priors although it should be noted that the June meeting takes place at the Church Hall in Dunnington.  All meetings are advertised on noticeboards, placed on our Facebook page and emailed to anyone who has subscribed to the email newsletter (E-News).

Residents have the right, and are most welcome to attend all meetings. At Ordinary Meetings of the Council, time is set aside for the members of the public to raise any matter of concern under agenda item ‘Open Forum’.

County and District Councillors representing the Ward make formal reports to the Parish Council at Ordinary Meetings.

Please subscribe to our email Newsletter to receive news and agendas of up and coming meetings.

The Parish Council needs and welcomes feedback from all ages – please do not hesitate to phone, email or write.  Remember this is your Parish Council!

Agendas will be posted on notice boards, Facebook, and this website.  They will also be emailed to all subscribers of the website.

Minutes will be posted within one month of the previous meeting.
