The Parish Council, under advisement, have today (24.3.20) closed the play area and telephone kiosk book exchange in Salford Priors.
Many thanks for your understanding.
As you are aware Salford Priors Parish Council, on advice of recent government guidance has closed the play area until further notice.
We have since received information that young people are still using the play equipment, although everything was tied up to make it obvious it should not be used.
- Coronavirus Covid-19 is believed to live on hard surfaces for up to 72 hours.
- Can you guarantee your child will not touch their eyes, nose or mouth before they return home to wash their hands or use hand sanitiser?
Salford Priors Parish Council ask that you respect these rules. Do not use the play equipment and only use the area for exercise once a day, remembering to stay 2m away from other people who are not members of your household.
The police have urged that we all play our part in protecting our communities and keeping people safe. For most, this will be staying at home, which will help to slow the transmission of the virus and reduce pressure on the NHS, ultimately saving lives.
If anyone should see young people using the equipment or gathering together, please call the police on 101 – from today they have the powers to stop gatherings taking place.
THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT ACTION WE CAN ALL TAKE, IN FIGHTING CORONAVIRUS, IS TO STAY AT HOME, IF POSSIBLE, IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE NHS AND SAVE LIVES
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.
