At the latest coronavirus press conference, Dominic Raab said: “PLEASE STAY AT HOME THIS EASTER BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND. It’s Still too early to lift the measures that are in place so we have to ask you to continue with the restrictions to stay at home and protect the NHS. The peak has not been reached yet and now almost 8,000 have died in the UK. The numbers are a lot better than they would have been if the restrictions were not in place. Social distancing is working.”
CLOSED OVER EASTER:
FORMBY SQUIRREL RESERVE, CROSBY BEACH,
AINSDALE BEACH AND SOUTHPORT BEACH ARE ALL CLOSED TO VISITORS.
Please DO NOT come into these areas for a day out. If you live in the area, you are able to go for a walk for your daily exercise but please stay local to your own area.
All National Trust car parks are closed to further attempt to help restrict the spread of coronavirus. There is nowhere to park your cars outside the National Trust and enforcement officers will be on duty.
ALL PUBLIC TOILETS ARE CLOSED ACROSS SEFTON AND ACROSS NATIONAL TRUST SITES.
We encourage everyone to stay local to where you live, observe social distancing and do not travel.
Neither Victoria Road or Lifeboat Road car parks in Formby will be open until further notice. The toilets are also closed.
National Trust and Sefton Council have sealed all their bins so if you are out, please TAKE YOUR RUBBISH AND DOG POOP HOME WITH YOU!
As a consequence of the coronavirus outbreak:
All play areas and outdoor gyms have been closed
All coastal car parks have been closed
All public toilets have been closed
Lifeguarding has been suspended at all beach sites
Residents are still currently permitted to go outside to exercise once a day, either alone or with people they live with. This should be somewhere within walking distance. Everyone should avoid congregating in groups and remain 2m away from others.
Green Sefton is also urging visitors to take rubbish and dog fouling home with them, as refuse collection and other maintenance will not be possible across all sites at this time.
If you see anything that requires attention in any of our green spaces, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Green Sefton may not be able to commit as many resources to regular inspections during the COVID-19 outbreak, so visitors can play their part in helping us to maintain our green spaces.
Each time the RNLI or The Coastguard teams and other emergency services are called to incidents which shouldn’t be happening during lockdown, staff are being put at risk of #COVID19.
So enjoy the Easter sunshine this long weekend, but please follow the Government guidance.
Thank you all for your support during these unprecedented times.
