Use of Parks during lockdown

Parks can be used once a day, and only for a walk or exercise.

  • Stay local. Don’t drive - car parks will be closed.
  • Stay 2m apart from people not in your household.
  • Keep dogs on a lead at all time.
  • Playgrounds, sports courts and outdoor gyms are all closed – don’t try to use them.
  • Don’t met up with friends – you could catch it off each other then spread to members of your family.
  • Don’t gather in groups – you will be dispersed.
  • Keep moving – don’t sunbathe, have a picnic or barbecue or play games. The reason for this is we need a steady flow of people in and out. The more people who take up space for longer, the harder it is to keep 2m apart, and the fewer people can use the park. It’s about being fair and considerate of others.
  • If the park looks really busy, give it a miss.

Libraries

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

During lockdown there are several information pages for children with SEND

Throughout the directory, you will see a green triangle with SEND ü, this means that the provider has given information on how they support children and young people who have special educational needs and disabilities. Activities listed without a green triangle are universal services, which are available to all children. You will need to contact each provider to see how they can support your child's individual needs.

Take me to a list of activities, where SEND information has been provided 

Cycling in Hounslow

Due to COVID-19, our cycling activities have changed. We are currently only running 1-to-1 adult cycle training and Dr bike sessions until further notice. As this information may change in the summer and we may hopefully be able to run child or family cycle training, please refer people to our website for the latest information on cycle training: www.hounslow.gov.uk/CycleHounslow
