Urgent Government Coronavirus Social Distancing measures – Closure of Monk Fryston & Hillam Playground


Please note that the Monk Fryston and Hillam Community Centre Playground will be closed immediately until further notice due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.


The gates will be locked and notices put in place to remind everyone, even households which may be a family unit who live together, that it is closed to everyone.  


Individuals who wish to exercise may do so in the grass recreation area so long as they respect social distancing guide lines – a minimum 2 meter distance between two people unless they are members of the same household.


These measures will be in place for at least 3 weeks and will announce when the Playground has re opened to the Public. We hope that the closure is as short as possible.

Meanwhile we hope that everyone strictly adheres to all the social distancing measures, which are designed to keep us all as safe as possible.


With our best wishes – please try to stay safe.
