Children still playing in large groups

The Police have just notified the Clerk of a group of 10 children playing on School Lane Playing Fields. This area has been fenced and closed off and they are trespassing.

They have been moved off, but I must ask you to keep your children at home and to inform you that the Police have the powers to issue fines to those who are not adhering to the rules.

Please help to save lives and stay at home.
