Play areas and sports facilities closed until further notice

In line with government guidance on social distancing, Lewisham Council has decided to close all outdoor facilities such as playgrounds, while keeping parks open. We are following suit on our estates, closing all play areas and sports facilities from Tuesday 24 March, in order to discourage people from gathering and to stop the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.

Please make sure to keep a safe distance from others even when outdoors or when shopping. Try not to get closer than 2 metres (6ft).

To find out more about what you can do to prevent the spread of coronavirus and for advice if you think you might be infected or at risk, please visit the NHS website. If you feel the outbreak is impacting on your mental health and would like advice, please visit the Mental Health Foundation website.

Thank you for your efforts as we work together through this challenging time.
