As part of the national response to limit the spread of the Coronavirus, we are working towards re-opening our playgrounds whilst maintaining social distancing.
Advice for users and parents
Children and parents must not interfere with closure measures where a playground remains closed. If it is closed then this will be for a good reason. Do not endanger yourself by breaching closure measures. Wait until the playground has been opened fully.
Maintain social distancing within the playground, according to the government’s latest advice.
If the playground is too busy then please go to another playground to play.
Wash your hands before going to the playground and after you have finished. Use hand sanitiser often.
Martlesham Recreation Ground is located off The Street, Martlesham. Facilities at the site include a Bowls Club, petanque pitch, football pitch, car parking and recycling bins, and the Kronji's Piece children's play area. The Recreation Ground is owned by a Charity and managed by the Parish Council as the Charity Trustee. Kronji's Piece is an adjacent parcel of land gifted to the Parish Council and owned by the Parish Council.
The Recreation and Amenities Committee of the Council manages the site. A general management plan has been produced and relevant day to day matters are included in Recreation and Amenities meeting agendas. Parishioners who wish to help with how the recreation ground develops or have suggestions for improvements should contact the Clerk. Alternatively parishioners may attend meetings to raise issues or comment.
