After 4 months the Governors' Field and its play area re-open on July 24th. Its core opening hours will be from midday to 6pm, every day except Monday when it will be closed for safety checks, grasss cutting and other work.

You may find that the Governors' Field has re-opened earlier than midday on some days - this is because one of our wonderful helpers has cleaned the equipment early, and left the gate open for you to enjoy.

Like many other familiar places, the Governors' Field isn't quite the same as it was before Covid-19. We have removed certain pieces of equipment, erected signage limiting numbers and marked out places to wait. The key touch points in the park will be cleaned daily, but we are asking everyone to make sure they take extra responsibility for hygiene.

We are still keen to recruit volunteers to help us with the daily cleaning tasks and the unlocking/locking of the gate. If you can help, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please enjoy the park and observe the new rules, so that we can all play our part in stopping the spread of Covid-19.
