COVID-19 Restrictions – Stay Local

Please Note – Kent County Council have closed the symptom free COVID-19 testing site in Cranbrook.
For more details on how to get symptom free testing, please visit the Kent County Council website

Monday 29th March 2021 – England has proceeded to the next step of the UK government’s plan for easing the COVID-19 restrictions.

You are now able to:
• meet in groups of 6 people outside, including in a private garden
• meet in groups of 2 households

You can take part in formally organised outdoor sports with any number of people (outdoor sports venues and facilities will be able to reopen)

You should still stay at home as much as you can. You should continue working from home, if you can.

You won’t be able to travel abroad.

For the time being, all non-essential retail is to remain closed. Many of our High Street shops offer on-line shopping. Please do support them if you can. A summary of what local businesses are offering can be accessed by following this link: Business Register

Essential retail, including supermarkets, pharmacies and builders’ merchants can remain open. As can dentists and opticians.

Playgrounds remain open – please see below for playground rules.

For full details of the national lockdown guidance, please visit the government website

The Parish Council will continue to receive calls on our normal telephone number 01580 713112, via the COVID Helpline number 0300 770 2262 and email

PLAYGROUND RULES – As previously mentioned, playgrounds also remain open, but, please continue to observe the playground rules:

  *  Follow the Government rules on social distancing and stay 1m+ apart from others, and 2m if possible.

  *   Please wait until it’s your turn to play and don’t overcrowd the playground.

  *   Limit your time to allow others to play.

  *   Only one household at a time on the multi-play units please.

  *   Please provide your own hand sanitizer, and use it before and after using the play equipment. We advise to wipe the equipment at touch points before use if possible.  Please dispose wipes/gloves in the bins provided.

  *   Washing your hands is one of easiest ways to protect yourself and others from the virus.  Avoid touching your face before your hands are washed.  As soon as you can, wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.

  *   Please do not consume food or drink in the playground.
