Following the announcement that archaeological investigations are continuing in Abbey Fields, Warwick District Council is pleased to confirm that the children’s play area in the park has been reopened for the summer holidays.
The play area has been open at weekends only during the demolition and was initially planned to remain that way until construction had been completed, but with demolition and building work slowed by the discovery of medieval remains on the site, contractors AR Demolition are now able to provide access to the play area during the summer period.
There may be periods when access to the play area will be closed to ensure the safe passage of construction vehicles and material. The Council will endeavour to provide updates on its social media channels whenever such closures will last longer than a few minutes.
Further updates will be provided once work commences on site and the play area returns to weekend only opening until the end of the construction.
Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership is encouraging bikers to sign up for FREE BikeSafe motorcycle skills training.#
Bikers can get instant access to the training that can be used either as a skills refresher for more experienced bikers, to help identify potential gaps in your knowledge if you haven’t had much training, or to provide a good overview of the skills needed for newer bikers. As well as hazard awareness, the training covers corners and overtaking, junctions, and filtering.
Those who complete the training will also be entered into a FREE prize draw to win biker related goodies.
For those who prefer to learn face to face, there are a few remaining spaces available on BikeSafe at Leek Wootton in Warwickshire on 1, 8 and 15 October. The July, August and September courses are now fully booked but there is a waiting list if these are the only dates you can do.
The in-person BikeSafe courses are designed to improve your knowledge and skills in a relaxed classroom environment before taking to the road on your motorbike to ride some of the more challenging routes through Warwickshire. You will be observed by a highly skilled professional police motorcyclist who will then provide feedback and information to improve your skills further to help you stay as safe as possible, whilst most importantly, maximising your enjoyment of your time on your bike.
The FREE BikeSafe training and prize draw entry is available here:
