Flemingate new play area opened by Beverley Mayor

This week saw the opening of Flemingate’s new play area.

Flemingate have doubled the size of their existing popular play area, with the addition of an activity tower featuring a climbing wall and slide, interactive play panels and some new play equipment for younger children.  The area is now also fully enclosed with fencing around the area, giving even further confidence to parents that their children can use the area safely.

The fantastic new play area was officially opened on Thursday by The Mayor of Beverley, Councillor Tom Astell.

Councillor Astell, said: “It’s a pleasure to open these new facilities, which I hope can be enjoyed by many more children and young families for years to come.”

Flemingate have put in place a number of safety measures including the introduction of a one-way entrance and exit, hand sanitisers, regular cleaning throughout the day and signage reminding of social distancing.  Children must be supervised by an adult at all times to ensure these measures are adhered to. 

Jo Bridgeman, Marketing and Events manager, said: "We have seen many children walking past and wanting to go and play so it is great it can now open.  We want people to enjoy the outdoor play area but it is important that they also remember to stick to current guidelines. This is important for the safety of everyone."

The play area opening follows on from the easing of restrictions on the leisure industry.  Flemingate has extended outdoor seating areas of the restaurants, pubs and cafes to enable them to accommodate the need for social distancing and waiting areas.

The majority of the retail stores have now reopened and shoppers are returning. Essential stores at Flemingate remained open throughout the lockdown.

Wykeland Group, owner and developer of the popular retail and leisure destination, has used the lockdown period to introduce a wide range of improvements to enhance the experience for customers and to support businesses as they resume trading.
