It is with regret that the Council announces the closure of both play areas in Stocksfield from this evening.

The continuing advice from the Government, Public Health England and the NHS is to increase substantially the extent of social distancing from other members of the public who do not share a residence. This makes it difficult to share more restricted areas of open space like play areas.
The Multi Use Games Area at the sports fields has already been closed following the revised advice last week.
