BPFA  are looking for volunteers!

BPFA  are looking for volunteers!

 

We all know the phrase, IT TAKES A VILLAGE. And it’s true, it does. That’s where you come in!

To keep our park, its various apparatus, tennis court, basketball court, football pitch and surrounding green areas as beautiful as they are, we need you! So many of us enjoy what Broadmayne playing field offers us and we are lucky to have a space that our community can be proud of. Could you spare a few hours to help maintain it?

Broadmayne Playing Field Association is looking for volunteers to offer their time and support in order to share ideas about the evolution of the park, the events we could hold and most importantly, how we can keep it a place that we can all enjoy. You can be involved as little or as much as you like. From attending the quarterly meetings, to helping with safety checks and offering ideas as to how we can make the best use of the space that we have. It’s simple, really.

It doesn’t matter if you can’t do the monkey bars or if you are yet to slam-dunk on the court, we are calling for people who consider the park a place they can cherish.

Please do consider getting involved.

Public Health Dorset’s update on COVID-19

Whilst we have seen a small drop in case rates in Dorset over the past week, infection levels remain high and we can see that nationally cases are now rising rapidly due to the spread of the Omicron variant. We expect to see cases rise in Dorset over the next few weeks.

Latest COVID19 updates

The latest from Public Health Dorset

COVID-19 cases continue to rise in both Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council areas and Dorset Council areas. More info in our latest update.


Plan B

In response to the Omicron variant, the Government has announced that England will move to Plan B.

This means that:

  • From Friday 10 December, you must wear a face covering in most indoor settings
  • From Monday 13 December, you must work from home if you are able to do so
  • From Wednesday 15 December, COVID passes will be required in nightclubs and settings where large crowds gather

 Read more about this announcement and why these measures are being implemented.


Stay COVID safe this Christmas

As Christmas approaches, we are all looking forward to seeing family and friends and to going out and doing the things we enjoy, but it’s important to take steps to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19:

  • Wear a mask when you’re indoors or in a crowded space. If you’re unknowingly infected with COVID-19 this can help prevent it from spreading to other people, and if you’re wearing a face covering, you’re less likely to breathe COVID-19 particles in.
  • Ventilation and letting fresh air in can protect you from breathing in virus particles from someone with COVID-19. You are at higher risk of catching or passing on COVID-19 in crowded and enclosed spaces, where there are more people who might be infectious and where there is limited fresh air.
  • Take a rapid lateral flow test before you go into a high-risk situation such as meeting people, going to an event or seeing someone who is at risk of COVID-19, as this will give you peace of mind that you’re not spreading the virus. If you do test positive you can then self-isolate to protect others.

Stay up to date with government guidance in case restrictions change, and if you are organising a festive gathering or event, we have put together some tips to help you organise this safely.


19th December – Road Closure – West Knighton

We have been notified that the road will be closed in both directions between Knighton Lane and Hardy’s Row (it’s Highgate Lane) on Sunday the 19th December from 08:00 to 16:00. This is the stretch of road across the front of St Peter’s Church and clearly alternative routes will be quite lengthy!

The closure is in order to protect an Openreach workforce who will be working on pole testing in that area.

Changes to lateral flow testing

COVID-19 cases rose again last week across both Dorset Council areas
and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council areas
and COVID-19 hospital admissions continue to rise.

Changes to lateral flow testing

There has been a change to when you should take your lateral flow test. In England, you should take a rapid lateral flow test:

if you will be in a high risk situation that day

before you visit people who are at higher risk of severe illness if they get COVID

You are at higher risk of catching or passing on COVID when: 

in crowded and enclosed spaces

there is limited fresh air
