Adventure playgrounds await clarification on new lockdown rules

Adventure playgrounds in England, including here at Lollard Street, were today awaiting clarification about how the new Covid restrictions announced at the weekend are to be applied.

Government guidance says that playgrounds and some childcare provision can remain open but that youth groups and sports facilities should close. Adventure playgrounds, which contain elements of each, are not specifically identified in the measures.

We are seeking urgent clarification as to how the guidance should be interpreted for our kind of service and will make a further announcement as soon as this is received.

In the meantime, Lollard Street Adventure Playground remains open, Wednesday – Friday, 3.30 – 7.00 pm, until further notice.
