A message from the Parish Council

Hook Norton Parish Council would like to remind everyone that the Playground equipment remains out of bounds. Although someone has removed all signs and the tape that was placed around the equipment – this was not done by HNPC. In accordance with Government directives, we will now be replacing this.

We did not block entrances and exits to the park itself, so the Public may continue to walk through this area – again fully observing social distancing measures. We would like to thank everyone who has complied and urge others to remind older children that all equipment remains out of use. Again, this is due to the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) Regulations 2020 requirement that playgrounds must be closed.

We have also seen some anti-social behaviour in the park recently – a fire was lit under the new wooden shelter. Luckily no damage was done, but this matter has been referred to the police.

We are still awaiting information on when the War Memorial Hall may reopen – but that remains closed to the Public for the time being.

We thank you for your co-operation, as always.

Look after yourselves and each other, where possible look out for your neighbours, and if there is anything you think the Parish Council could be doing to help, please let us know : parishcouncil@hnpc.org.uk

Hook Norton Parish Council are pleased to inform everyone that the Government have now decided that cemeteries can, indeed, be open to the Public. We have therefore opened the village cemetery with immediate effect.

However, we have also been instructed that they can only remain open if the public abide by the social distancing measures currently in place – and we would also urge you to wash your hands thoroughly on your return home. Should it be reported that groups of people are gathering there, which we find extremely unlikely, we have been instructed to close it again. 

We did not block entrances and exits to the park itself, so the Public may continue to walk through this area– again fully observing social distancing measures. The play equipment within the village park must remain out of bounds, and we thank everyone for complying with this fact. Again, this is due to the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) Regulations 2020 requirement that playgrounds must be closed. 

We thank you for your co-operation, as always. 

Look after yourselves and each other, where possible look out for your neighbours, and if there is anything you think the Parish Council could be doing to help, please let us know : parishcouncil@hnpc.org.uk
