02 July 2020: Great Torrington Town Council manages three play areas in the town: Trafalgar Play Area, Greenbank Play Area and Jubilee Close Play Area and the Skate Park on Calf Street. The Prime Minister announced on 23 June that playgrounds will be able to reopen from 04 July, providing the owners/operators consider it safe to do so.
Using Government guidance issued last week, the Council is currently conducting a COVID-19 Risk Assessment of the play areas and skate park to determine what measures will need to be implemented in order to minimise the risk of potential COVID-19 transmission once they reopen. These areas will therefore remain CLOSED until the Council is confident it can facilitate their safe usage. We kindly remind parents/guardians/carers and children not to use the play areas or skate park whilst they remain closed to ensure we all stay as safe as we can.
We thank you for your cooperation during this challenging time. Please keep an eye out on our website and Facebook page for further updates.
