Ashes to remain open during lockdown
The Ashes will remain open throughout the second national lockdown of 2020, providing a valuable resource for the people of Howden.
The playpark, MUGA and Treeton Road car park – all required to be shut earlier in the year – are able to remain open as the rules are less stringent.
But visitors to the park are asked to follow the new guidelines, which include limits on meeting up with people from other households. Outdoor exercise such as that which our park is perfect for can only do so with household members or one other person.
The Daphne D’Ark Playpark and multi-use games area will remain open unless government advice changes. The above rules on group meetings may be enforced by Humberside Police.
With particular reference to the playpark, we ask that visitors follow the additional guidance:
- Don’t use if your child/someone in the family have symptoms or have tested positive for Covid-19
- If the area is busy please leave and come back when not so many children are using it so that the children can spread out
- Keep your distance from others waiting for their children and wear a face covering if possible
- Take hand sanitiser and apply before your child starts to use the equipment and again when leaving the area
- Ensure everyone washes their hands properly the moment they arrive home using soap and warm water… this is really important
The Ashes is a charity-run park and has missed out on thousands of pounds worth of projected income during 2020 due to cancelled events such as Howden Show, Picnic In The Park and the Ashes 5/10K run.
