At the Parish Council meeting held via zoom on Wednesday 3rd June, the precautions and risk mitigation strategies concerning the reopening of the Charles Cowper field were discussed. This is classified as a playing field, which, unlike parks and open spaces, are still subject to Government closure restrictions. The Jubilee field is defined as an open space and therefore remains open, albeit with social distancing requirements. Playing fields are classified as spaces for team games such as football where social distancing is extremely difficult. Therefore, until Government regulations change, the Parish Council, with a duty of care to parishioners, has no choice but to keep the Charles Cowper field closed.
This issue will be revisited at each monthly meeting.
Byfield Prescriptions - in order to minimise the number of people going to the surgery, Dr Dennis Burton has arranged with the surgery that he will pick up all Boddington prescriptions on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon and deliver them directly to you.
You will need to contact the surgery for your repeat prescriptions, and either pay for them over the phone or give them the reason for your exemption. Dr Burton will then pick them up for you and deliver directly to you.
