Everyone is very well aware that the UK Government is asking everyone to stay at home to tackle the Covid-19 virus and help our NHS cope with the pandemic.
It has also been recommended that we can go out once a day for exercise which could be a run, walk, walking the dog or whatever works for you.
We do however need to be very aware when we are out when it comes to social distancing. What would have been natural, to stop and chat to fellow dog walkers or catch up with a friend is now advised against during this time. Crossing the road when you see someone you know is no longer deemed to be rude but the sensible thing to do.
Lavendon playing field is still open but public play and exercise equipment in the village should not be used due to the virus being able to live on all surfaces for a period of time and the fact that when using such equipment it would be difficult to maintain social distancing.
Government guidance on social distancing can be found in the link below.
