Further to the below update, the City of Ely Council is working hard to re-open its play areas in line with the recent guidance issued by the UK Government.  In order to protect our staff and visitors, we will do this as soon as it is safe to do so, after the 4th July 2020.  In the meantime, play areas will remain closed.  Please bear with us and thank you for your understanding.

Please note that the City of Ely Council has taken the decision to close the children’s play parks which are under its control (please note that a number of play areas are controlled by ECDC).

This is not a decision which has been taken lightly but there are concerns that social distancing cannot be maintained and that the potential for the virus to live on the play equipment for a substantial time cannot be mitigated.

Please do not climb over fences or gates, but respect the unfortunate need to close these facilities.

The Parish comprises of the City of Ely and the villages of Prickwillow, Stuntney, Queen Adelaide, Chettisham and Shippea Hill.

The Council has been in existence since local government was re-organised in 1974 and it was at that time Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth granted Ely its City status.
