Welcome to the website for Draycott and Church Wilne Parish Council.

The website is our shop window to the wider world. We are proud of our village and welcome the opportunity the site gives us to say so.

The Parish Council is also proud to report that it has achieved Quality status as part of the Local Council Award Scheme.

Our playgrounds and Outdoor Fitness Equipment at Draycott park and the Leisure Green remains closed.

The latest Government guidance only allows playgrounds to re-open if they can take steps to reduce coronavirus risks including limiting the numbers of users, enforcing social distancing measures and cleaning play equipment after each use.

It’s impossible for us to establish measures like these for an unmanned playground.

Allowing the playground to be used without these measures in place would invalidate our insurance and put the health of our children at risk.

Regrettably, we therefore have no option but to keep the playground closed until further notice.

Unfortunately, we are removing a large amount of rubbish weekly from inside the play area. Please could you all remind all members of your household that this area is closed.

Where Are We
