    Parks, Playground and Open Spaces.

    Midsomer Norton Town Council will be following Government guidelines and will keep all parks, playgrounds and open spaces open to support our residents’ physical and mental wellbeing. It is important that in doing so, government guidelines are followed and social distancing measures are observed by all. To ensure the safety of everyone and following the Government restrictions the gym at West Clewes will remain closed to reduce the risk of infection, this temporary closure will remain in place for the duration of the restrictions. Latest Guidelines state: You may exercise on your own, with your household or support bubble, or with one person from another household (when on your own). Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household or support bubble.
