At a time we are seeing the very best in people wanting to help during the current current emergency, unfortunately there are always a very small number of people who see the emergency as an opportunity to rob and swindle.  Awareness is the best defence against these criminals and with this is mind, East Riding Council have produced the following leaflets - we would encourage everyone to read these important messages - if you are aware of elderly or vulnerable people, please also make them aware

This leaflet provides information regarding fraudsters and scammers for any groups set up during the coronavirus emergency to support vulnerable and elderly people in the community Awareness for Groups Supporting Vulnerable & Elderly People

Woodmansey Parks (Updated July 2020)

The two parks managed by the Parish Council (King Street and Southwood) are now open for both exercise and recreation in accordance with updated Government guidelines.  As of the 4th July, Playgrounds have also opened - however this is strictly subject to the observation of the following measures taken from the risk assessment carried out by Woodmansey PC to deal with the risk of Covid-19

In accordance with Government guidance this playground is now open. Woodmansey Parish Council has created a risk assessment to minimise risk of the transmission of Covid-19. However, it is impossible to entirely remove all risk and therefore anyone using the playground does so at their own risk and take personal responsibility for their (and their children) well-being by observing the following measures. Woodmansey Parish Council will monitor the situation and if Cllrs feel the following risk assessment measures are not being observed, it will not hesitate to close the playground again.

• if you or any member of your household has coronavirus symptoms or are self-isolating, then you must not visit our playgrounds

• no more than 10 people should be in the playground at any time and try and limit your visit to one hour to allow others to use the playground.

• only one parent / guardian should enter the playground to supervise their child or children and only children from the same household or bubble should use a piece of play equipment at the same time

 you and your children should stay at least 2 metres apart from others unless they are from the same household or bubble - or 1 metre if you are wearing face coverings

• sanitise your children’s hands before and after they use the equipment - scientific advice suggests that the virus can survive for up to several days on some hard surfaces. It is recommended you sanitise hands after using each piece of equipment in the playground

• there should be no eating or drinking while in the playground and encourage children to avoid putting their mouths on equipment, their hands in their mouths, or to touch their face

• leave the playground clean and tidy for others, take your litter home with you or put it any bins provided

                                                                                  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Parish Clerk on clerk.woodmansey.pc@gmail.com
