EASTER BREAK: Will council be forced to shut Mote park play areas?

Thursday 1st April 2021

MOTE Park's play areas could be shut this Easter after concerns about members of the public not obeying social distancing rules.
Three times the number of people were recently reported using children's facility which is designed for 100, according to reports.

Now that lockdown has been eased, Maidstone Borough Council fears overcrowding could lead to police intervention with the authority having to shut the park.
More than 7,000 users are expected over the bank holiday weekend.
