Leisure services update

Step 1 restrictions - From Monday 8 March 2021

Meeting others

Your are now allowed to leave your home for exercise or to visit a public outdoor place for recreation, like one of our parks.

You may do this on your own, with members of your household or support bubble, or with one other person when in a public outdoor place.

From 8 March, you will also be able to sit down on the same basis for a drink or picnic in the borough’s outdoor public spaces (including in private gardens). However, social distancing rules must still be followed.

You should minimise the time you spend outside your home for this, and you should not travel outside your local area.

You must stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household or support bubble and follow the guidance on how to stop the spread of coronavirus at all times.
