Blackmore End Playing Field Play Equipment

Closing Playground Equipment at Blackmore End Playing Field


Although the Blackmore End playing field is open for people to use for exercise, you should be aware that the government has instructed that all playgrounds should be closed. This means the play equipment (swings, zipwire, slide etc.) is not to be used. Although you may be the only people around, this equipment could have been infected by a previous user who has left the area.


Therefore, in the interest of children’s health, and to protect our community, the playground on Blackmore End playing field is closed.

They are coordinating individual volunteer and businesses across Essex to help those in need. Any currently existing community schemes are also being asked to join forces with them. They have the necessary safeguards in place to protect the vulnerable and maximise the potential impact of any help by using their funding and resources.
