RUDGWICK HALL and CHURCHMAN’S MEADOWS playgrounds/ Open Spaces
Having carefully considered the Government guidelines on being able to open playgrounds (4th July), the conclusion has been reached that Rudgwick Parish Council is currently unable to adhere to the rules and regulations that apply.
As such playgrounds are, regrettably, closed until the foreseeable future.
Please be aware that Rudgwick Hall car park is not in use on Monday 29th June 2020 from 7 am until 5 pm due to line marking of parking bays taking place.
The Skate Park surface has been damaged and, as a result, closed for repair as it is too dangerous to be used at this moment in time.
Keys found with `in house' key fob on Rudgwick playing field on Saturday 13th June 2020. If you have lost these keys please contact the Parish Council office on 01403 822678 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
