Following Government guidance to reduce the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Catherine Street Play Park is now closed until further notice. We understand the benefit of outdoor play and despite social distancing measures being adhered to by park users, the risk of spreading COVID-19 must be avoided. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to play when it is safe again to do so.

We can all play our part to support front line services by following Government guidance and staying at home. Please follow our updates on social media and our website.

Current Activities:

We’d like to thank all who attended our AGM recently and welcome all new members to Include Us. We enjoyed sharing the ‘Include Us at Catherine Street Park’ journey with you and were grateful for your positive feedback.

Despite the park being closed at the moment, the park team are working on activities, plans and events for the community once the pandemic is over. We will be sharing home-based activities, tips and positivity on our social media accounts and would love to hear your comments and feedback.

With so many people working from home we would appreciate it if you would save your used inkjet cartridges. You can recycle them via the following link to help raise funds for the park.

Best wishes from all the team at Include Us
