Owing to the Covid-19 virus, both the Rathbone Pavilion and Cuckoo Meadow are closed until further notice to comply with HM Government directives. When the Pavilion can be re-opened, regular hirers will have first refusal on resuming their previous day and time slots.
If exercising in the Meadow, please respect the Government's recommended 2 metre minimum spacing from other users and other requirements that may arise in due course.
Since the Village Trust is not now receiving any hire income, and the Pavilion has no users, to conserve funds we have suspended commercial collection of waste normally placed by hirers into the two industrial bins near the building. Please put all refuse, including dog waste, into the round bins at either end of the Meadow footpath.
The grass cutting season has now started and we expect to to be able to maintain this throughout the summer, although the schedule may vary from fortnightly as our contractor is currently operating single-handed.
In the Play Area. one strand of the vertical climbing net is broken. We have ordered a repair and the component is now with our contractor but their maintenance crew cannot fit it until a normal working pattern is resumed.
