Surlingham Parish Council – Use of Surlingham Staithe During Lock Down


With this glorious weather we are enjoying, activity at the Staithe has increased. Please be aware The Broads Authority has issued the following statement

Now is not the time to visit the Broads. Please do not travel here for leisure or exercise.

The only people that should be on the Broads waterways are those that live aboard their boats and essential services supporting the COVID-19 response such as the Coastguard, Broads-Beat Officers, Broads Authority Rangers and operations staff conducting essential maintenance.

Think before you access the waterways – would you put lives at risk and extra strain on our emergency services if you get in difficulty?

Stay at Home – Save lives.

This is also supported by British Canoeing who strongly recommends that all paddlesport activity should cease on rivers, waterways and coastal areas until further notice.

Thank you

p.s. If you do exercise your dog at the Staithe please clear up after your pet to keep the area clean and safe for others to enjoy.
