In order to help suppress the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all open space and football bookings across South Holland District's sites have been postponed until further notice.

The Castle Field and Monkshouse playing field will remain accessible as open spaces only, and changing room facilities, sports matches or training will not be available during this time. If you are visiting the spaces please remember to adhere to social distancing guidelines and stay more than 2 metres apart from others.

The safety of our users and staff is of course always our priority and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. The latest updates will be available on the Council's social media pages and website.
