Parks, Public Spaces and Play Areas
The Government has outlined the importance of public parks and open spaces remaining open to the public, so please continue to enjoy these while following social distancing guidelines. Cemeteries also remain open. We’d like to remind residents that all the Council’s play areas, skate parks and outdoor gyms remain closed. Officers from Sussex Police are patrolling and may issue a £60 penalty to anyone seen using them.

Bonfires and BBQs
Please be considerate to your community and don’t light bonfires as the smoke can affect respiratory health. Let us know online if you have concerns about bonfires in your neighbourhood.
Feel free to enjoy a BBQ with members of your household only, but please be careful when lighting and tending your BBQ and ensure food is cooked thoroughly to avoid food poisoning.
