Play Areas
Wolston Parish Council has been exploring whether it would be possible to re-open the play areas on the recreation ground. At the moment guidance from Government is not clear and, in accordance with guidance we have received from the National Association of Local Councils, a decision has been made that the play areas should remain closed. This will be kept under review and it is hoped that they can be opened as soon as guidance on safe re-opening is available.
