Sevenoaks recreation areas out of bounds – but tending allotments is still allowed as long as you follow the rules

Coronavirus COVID 19 Emergency Measures – More advice from Sevenoaks Town Council

To all Sevenoaks Residents

Following the Prime Minister’s address to the nation on 23 March 2020 all communal places within parks, such as playgrounds, skate parks, sports courts and outdoor gyms have been closed from today.

The instruction has also been given that people must stay at home except where it is essential for work purposes – but workers should be trying to minimise all meetings and other gatherings in the workplace. Our offices are now closed for the public to attend, answer phone messages and emails will be responded to asap.

Our Grounds Team (exception of cemetery staff) are therefore being asked to go home and be available only in essential situations and as back up to cemetery staff.

Please help us to limit the spread of the virus by:

  • Taking your litter and dog waste home
  • Respecting the closure of playgrounds, skateparks and outdoor gyms
  • Following government guidelines

 Tending allotments is still permitted but please observe strict social spacing and wear gloves when opening and closing gates.

Thank you for your support and assistance in keeping the special town of Sevenoaks and the community safe in these exceptional times.

Linda Larter MBE

Chief Executive / Town Clerk
