The Chairman and members of Uplyme Parish Council wish to express their sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and members of the Royal Family following the death of Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.
The children’s playground at King George’s Field will be closed for a few days – starting on Friday 18th July: this is because an emergency flood relief channel will be dug along the hedge by the road and then a fence will need to be put up. The new fence should also deter children from entering (or more dangerously – leaving) the playground by pushing through the hedge into the main road.
I know people will be disappointed – but it wouldn’t be safe to have small children playing whilst a digger was working nearby. I hope everyone understands.
And this is what we hope to avoid in future: just over 2 years ago!
