SOLIHULL Council is preparing the borough’s playgrounds for re-opening on Monday.
Council leader Ian Courts said: “Something else that I’m sure parents will welcome is the re-opening of our playgrounds and outdoor gym equipment from Monday 6 July. We will be following the national guidance and currently staff are inspecting all equipment to ensure it is safe and clean.
“I expect there will be lots of very excited children who have been waiting patiently for months, but please remember to observe social distancing when using them.
“We will be asking you to use hand sanitiser before using the equipment, not to eat food in the play areas, to use the bins proved and if possible wipe equipment down after use. “Aside from being unsightly and unpleasant for other users, rubbish can spread the virus.”
