Firstly, and most importantly, following our previous reopening message, you will all no doubt be aware that with the further changes to lockdown measures announced on Tuesday 23rd June, we are thankfully able to start making firm plans for reopening certain facilities this month. In order to facilitate this we are undertaking the following actions:
As soon as possible further specific announcements will be made regarding these plans, so watch this space!
Other information since our last update, in brief is as follows:
We would again like to thank those members of our local community who are respecting social distancing guidelines and who take their own rubbish home when using the park. We take this opportunity to remind everyone that respecting the current guidelines, and indeed the park and other users in this way is essential if we are to keep these facilities available.
As always, we must show appreciation to those who have joined the Community Association during this period. Wythall Community Association is a registered charity, administered by volunteers. The funds come from subscriptions, rental fees, fund-raising events and donations and the funds raised by the Community Club. It is not council owned and maintained (unlike Bromsgrove’s Sanders Park for example), and losing events such as the Carnival and Bonfire seriously impacts our income so we remain heavily dependent on membership fees and donations to keep this essential local asset open and accessible at this time. If you are making use of the park but not yet a member, please do consider joining. It involves paying just a low annual fee, and details are available here: Wythall Community Associate Membership but joining the Community Club costs little more and will enable you to socialise and buy refreshments in Wythall House when we are able to re-open: Wythall Community Club Membership
Finally, watch this space for further updates, and stay safe!
