Forest Mobile Meals

We are pleased to be able to pass on this message from Forest of Dean Health Forum:

Tidenham Parish Playground Equipment Remains Closed

Parish Council playground equipment remains closed under the current lockdown restrictions and has been taped off with signs stating closed to prevent its use. All Parish Council play equipment is regularly checked. Please be assured that once use of the equipment is allowed, further safety checks will be carried out. Meanwhile please do not remove the tape or signs that is there to stop its use and thereby help in the efforts to keep people safe at this time.

The Parish Council will be considering the opening of play areas at its Amenities Committee Meeting on Wednesday 8th July.  In preparation a risk assessment has been completed and the need for social distance signage.

The outside play area and outside adult exercise area risk assessment can be found by clicking this link.
