Welcome to Messingham Parish Council
This website provides information about your council, and will also give an insightful look into what Messingham Parish has to offer.
Coronavirus measures – Closure of play areas
Messingham Parish Council has taken the decision to close its Childrens play area and Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) on Northfield Road and Recreation field on Holme Lane with effect from Tuesday 24th March until further notice.
The decision was made in response to Government advice and the additional measures announced on Monday 23rd March in the fight against the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
The action has been taken in the interests of public health and the serious risks this virus has to life. These steps will help minimise the spread of the virus by those contravening the ‘social distancing’ guidelines.
We are all facing unprecedented times and the Parish Council appeals for your co-operation in keeping our residents safe.
The only access to the grounds will be for retrieval of the defibrillator (Holme Lane) and inspection & maintenance purposes.
The decision will be reviewed and monitored in line with Government announcements.
