PARKS AND PLAY AREAS


Play areas will be re-opening on July 4th.

  • Please wash your hands after visiting the play area and bring sanitiser with you to use regulary whilst at the playground
  • Please give each other room and keep socially distanced from others.  If there are more children in the play area than there are pieces of equipment, please go home and return later.  No one over the age of 7 in any fenced play area
  • We recommend the use of face masks when using play areas
  • Please keep socially distanced when using benches
  • To ensure everyone gets a turn please restrict your use of the play area to no more than 45 minutes

 MEMORIAL BENCHES

 

Memorial benches are available to purchase in memory of loved ones.  The Town Council can offer several very attractive places for them to be situated.  These are:-

  • Ousebank Gardens - in the park area outside of the cemetery
  • Riverside Meadows - along the river
  • Castle Meadows - within the meadows
To arrange for a memorial bench to be erected for a loved one contact the Town Clerk by email on townclerk@newport-pagnell.org.uk.  The Town Clerk will arrange for the procurement of the bench, its erection and a suitable memorial plaque.

 

The cost of a memorial bench is £1,200 which includes erection, regular maintenance including oiling when necessary, and a stainless steel plaque of 12.5cm x 5cm naming the loved one to be remembered.  Purchase of a memorial bench will be for the expected life period of the bench only, after which time it will be removed.

 

Once a bench is erected in a public area, it becomes available for anyone in the public to use.  The bench is 150cm wide and seats 3 people.  It is made of Iroko Teak and is installed either into the ground or onto a base with suitable fixings.
