COVID-19 update 2
Covid-19 update 1
Sunningdale is surrounded by green belt and lies within the borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. It is approximately 15 miles from Heathrow Airport and 30 miles from Central London, and it is close to the M3, M4 and M25 motorways.
The Local Government Act 1894 introduced elected district and parish councils. Sunningdale Parish Council held its first meeting on December 31st of that year under the chairmanship of the Reverend Cree, the vicar of Holy Trinity Church at the time.
On this website you will find material on the workings of the council plus significant community-related content, including a fairly comprehensive set of local histories.
The response to the COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly evolving issue and the Parish Council would refer all residents to the government pages for the updates as they arise. https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus will provide you with the information as it is released.
After the announcement by the Prime Minister yesterday, Monday 23rd March, it has become apparent that to conform to the guidelines in these exceptional times, the Parish Council must now close all playgrounds, restrict access to play equipment which may be in open recreation fields and close the tennis courts.
Therefore, with immediate effect Broomhall Lane Recreation Ground is closed to all visitors other than those who are complying with the clear guidelines provided by the government.
“people will only be allowed to take part in one form of exercise per day like a walk,
run or cycle alone or with members of your household”
Please help us to follow the guidelines and only use the park when you have no where else to go.
- Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (where this absolutely cannot be done from home)
- Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
- Wash your hands as soon as you get home
