All Play Areas are now CLOSED

The response to the COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly evolving issue and the Parish Council would refer all residents to the Government information pages for updates as they arise.

What you need to do

Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on Monday 23rd March, it has become apparent that to conform to the guidelines in these exceptional times, the Parish Council must now close all playgrounds, restrict access to play equipment which may be in open recreational fields and close the tennis courts, multi-use courts, skate-park and outdoor gym equipment.

Therefore, with immediate effect the following sites are closed to all visitors other than to visitors who are complying with the clear guidelines provided by the Government.

“people will only be allowed to take part in one form of exercise per day like a walk, run or cycle alone or with members of your household

Green Corridor Survey

2019 has seen us working with Wildlife in Ascot, a local community group founded to protect and support the wildlife in our community, to fulfil the biodiversity project objectives in our Neighbourhood Plan and seek to improve the green corridors in our parish.

Information from the local community is invaluable in helping the Green Corridor Project to progress and we would like to encourage everyone, young, old and in between, to get involved in finding out about the flora, fauna and wildlife in your gardens and local area and most importantly, letting Wildlife in Ascot know what you discover.

To see what has been done so far,  click here.  For more information and to report your findings contact Wildlife in Ascot at ascot.wildlife@gmail.com.
