The Play Park is now open again!

Although, ‘someone’ has removed the cable ties on the gates already, this post is not completely pointless.

The Parish Council has completed a risk assessment and the park can now open officially.

The junior swing will be installed in August as soon as it is safe, the seats will be attached.

Parents/carers are reminded to continue to be vigilant when using the park. The coronavirus is still with us and we all need to be able to enjoy the park safely.

This means:

  • no picnics are allowed
  • using cleaning wipes on touch points of the equipment before your children use it
  • bringing hand sanitiser with you to clean children’s hands and using it more often than usual.
  • reminding children not to touch their faces, and to cough or sneeze into a tissue or arm when a tissue is not available
  • reminding children not to put their mouths on equipment or their hands in their mouths
  • reminding you of the need for social distancing.
  • reminding you to take used tissues, wipes etc home and dispose of them properly in the household waste bin.

Thank you

Surlingham Staithe – Update on Progress

The Parish Council wanted to update you on the progress so far at the Staithe.

Canoe racks are in the process of being installed constructed of recycled plastic pipes. An ingenious idea of Councillor Reeve’s. The racks will be maintenance free and the pipes make it easy to slide canoes in and out.

Many owners have come forward to identify their craft which have been numbered and owners contact details logged. If any craft remain unidentified decisions will be made regarding sale/disposal depending on condition.

The access path continues to be mown and the areas either side left to rewild.

More racks will follow as supplies of pipes are made available as will the picnic table.

Towards the end of the summer the fallen tree will be removed and the dyke between the staithe and the land to the east will be reinstated. While many may agree the tree looks rather attractive it is a hazard to canoes and blocks the view from the staithe. Removal avoids the chance of it sinking lower and blocking the staithe completely.

Playful Picnics for shielding families at Wheatfen Forest School

While Wheatfen Forest School clubs are paused due to Covid-19, we are hosting some Toy Like Me playful picnics and woodland wanders for families who are shielding.

Lockdown might be easing but we know that for some families it remains an ever real threat and worry.

If you are a family with children or a young person under 21 and someone in your family is shielding from Covid19 due to medical reasons, you can have access to 3 hours in this beautiful woodland setting all by yourself, fully funded by Toy Like Me.

Hop on over to our booking calendar and pick a slot to enjoy the peace and tranquility of our forest space safely undisturbed. We will send you all the information you need via email.


Toy Like Me are also offering sessions at Hautbois Activity Centre. If you would like to book there, call Hautbois Activity Centre on 01603 737357.

Multiple bookings at both settings are welcome. Genuine shielders only! Tell your shielding friends!
