Availability of Coleshill Town Council outdoor facilities during lockdown from 5th January 2021

Unfortunately, due to the current regulations from Central Government, the following alterations have been made to the availability of our outdoor facilities.  We hope this helps to clarify the situation for everyone and encourage you to look after yourselves as well as you can within the limitations of the current situation.  We hope that you all stay well and look forward to offering the use of these facilities again, when we are directed to do so safely.

The guidance given here is based on the advice as of 5th January 2021 and this may change.  Please always strictly adhere to Central Government Guidance and NHS guidance at all times to keep yourself and others safe.

Tennis courts

Outdoor courts should not be used and they will therefore be locked.

Children’s Play equipment

Specific advice from Government is that these should stay open to use. Please adhere to the advice on the posters on-site regarding Covid-secure use; stay safe and adhere to national restrictions.


This will be open. Please adhere to the advice on the posters on-site regarding Covid-secure use; stay safe and adhere to national restrictions.

 Outdoor gym equipment items

Unfortunately, the outdoor gym equipment will be out of use and taped off.

 Football pitches

All amateur football games are not permitted.  The Council has removed the goalposts to discourage groups playing and to allow the grass on the goal mouths to recover. We will be carrying out essential maintenance of the pitches during this period.

Coleshill Town Council COVID19 Change to Burial Procedures

Coleshill Town Council is working hard to keep everything running smoothly in Coleshill Cemetery; the latest Government Guidelines state that:

Funerals are allowed with strict limits on attendance, and must only take place in COVID-19 secure venues or in public outdoor spaces unless in exceptional circumstances.

Funerals can be attended by a maximum of 30 people. Linked religious, belief-based or commemorative events, such as stone settings and ash scatterings can also continue with up to 6 people in attendance. Anyone working is not counted in these limits. Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble.

Therefore graveside services and scatterings at Coleshill Cemetery can still continue.

We please ask that people attending the cemetery for services or to visit graves follow the up-to-date Government Guidelines and maintain, at all times, 2m apart from anyone not living in their household or bubble.

Please also ensure you remain 2m apart from any members of staff.

The cemetery remains open but, in order to keep our staff as safe as possible, they will not be opening and closing the gates to our cemetery gates on a daily basis, at the usual times.  They will, however, be on hand when there are burials or scatterings taking place.  There is still some limited parking available on the drive towards the tennis club.
