Play area has reopened as of 2.00 pm Saturday
UPDATE 18 July 2020
The play area is now open following treatment for the wasp nest.
Please continue to observe social distancing rules and keep safe.
A wasp nest in the play area has been treated today, 17th July. It will be safe from tomorrow at around 5 pm to re-enter the area, subject to final check by the grounds staff. As a precaution the play area has been locked on the advice of the pest control operative – it will be re-opened tomorrow as soon as the wasp activity has died down (maximum 24 hours but possibly sooner).
Thank you to everyone who contacted the council to report the nest.
