COVID-19 UPDATE

We know people have been asking about how they can use the Recreation Ground and Play Parks in Bampton. The Trustees have always tried to follow the Government’s guidance and will continue to do so. The latest guidance on the relaxation of the lockdown does allow some sports to start but as each location is different they are fairly general. The Trustees discussed how we can protect our staff and our visitors and we can tell you that:

  • The latest Covid-19 Secure guidance specifically says You will still not be able to use areas like playgrounds so the Play Parks will remain shut.

  • It also says You can only exercise with up to one person from outside your household – this means you should not play team sports so the Multisport court will remain locked.

  • Sandford Field remains open and will do so unless gatherings of large quantities of people pose a risk to others in which case this decision may be reviewed.

The Trustees are doing their best to provide suitable and safe opportunities for exercise for the people of Bampton in these troubling times. We hope you will use our facilities safely and respect social distancing guidance while you are there; only exercise with up to one person from outside your household and avoid touching surfaces where possible.

At this point we would like to mention the CEMETERY. The regulations have not changed so it will remain unlocked. However, there has been an increase of dog faeces which spreads to the graves and memorials when the grass is cut. We believe this is disrespectful and if dog waste continues to be a problem we may have to consider banning dogs from the cemetery.
