In the 5pm Sunday 22 March Coronovirus briefing, the Prime Minister said:

 “The health benefits of keeping parks open outweigh epidemiological value of closing them.”

 “It is very important for people’s mental and physical wellbeing that they should be able to get out and exercise. That’s why parks and open spaces are absolutely crucial.

“If people don’t exercise responsibly in the parks and greenspaces, there is going to be no doubt we are going to bring forward further measures and we are keeping that under constant review.”

 If we want to continue to benefit from the breathing spaces that our parks and greenspaces offer us…

 Please, please, please...

 Avoid overcrowding in popular parks and play areas

 Seek out quieter, local greenspaces that you can walk to from home

 Remember to follow the social distancing advice at all times
