News Update

New Lockdown Changes – 4 January 2021

Dear Residents

As I’m sure you have heard we are again moving to full Lockdown

The only additional changes that this makes on the Park is that we must once again close the Tennis Courts from tonight.

The Play area may remain open but use must be restricted to a single household/legal bubble on any piece of equipment at any one time. Parents are strongly advised to disinfect all touch points on any equipment before your child uses it.

Lets all hope that these restrictions can be lifted sooner rather than later!

Tier 4 Restrictions – 30 December 2020

Dear Residents,

As I’m sure you have heard, Cheshire is moving to Tier 4 restrictions from midnight tonight. This change was made at very short notice and so our apologies for this late update.

The bar had already had to close from Christmas Eve so the only real change is that the swimming pool and squash courts must close as well. So all swimming and squash bookings have been cancelled until the rules change yet again.

Perhaps surprisingly, the tennis courts can remain open. Please be aware that you are only allowed to play with people in your household/support bubble and ONE other person. The current manual booking system will remain in place with the booking forms next to the court door.

May we wish everyone a happy New Year and hope that things get better soon!

Update from the Trustees – 23 December 2020

Dear Residents,

As you may have heard Cheshire is moving to Tier 3 from Boxing Day. This is very disappointing but hardly a surprise.

As things currently stand the Pool and squash/tennis courts can remain open on the same basis as now and we will continue to support these activities as needed.

However, the bar must close.  As the bar was not opening on Christmas day the last bar session will be on Christmas Eve closing at 10pm.  After that the bar will have to remain closed until we move back to a lower tier.

We would like to wish you all the best possible Christmas and New Year.

Swimming Pool update

The pool will reopen on the same basis as before lockdown. Single households (or formal support bubbles) may book the pool for 1-hour slots starting at 7:30 in the morning until 6:30 in the evening (last booking must be clear of the pool by 7:30pm). Slots before 10:30am may only be booked by adult residents who have signed an “Early Swimming” insurance declaration and no children are allowed during this early swimming period. Access to the clubhouse is by key fob only and only the person making the booking’s fob will be activated. Everyone must clean down the areas that they have used before leaving the pool.
To make a booking please email giving a list of your preferred date and time options, we will try to accommodate your first choice wherever possible and time slots will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
To make a booking over the phone please call the reception phone number from Monday 30th November as the Reception telephone will not be manned over the weekend.

Attached is a sheet explaining the process for booking and attending swimming.

Swimming Pool use information for Residents. 24 August 2020

Tennis Court use update 2 December 2020

Open for use from Wednesday morning at all times but see below re lights. Booking will be on the usual paper forms in the plastic wallet near the gate which will be available from Saturday evening. Please be considerate to other users and maintain social distance. The rule of 6 will apply in any case where more than one household is using the courts. The number for the padlock was changed just before lockdown due to youths using the courts for playing football and interfering with the lock. The new code is available from the office or the mobile number shown on the gate. PLEASE do not share the code with anyone except those using the tennis courts within these rules.
Due to the dark evenings at this time of year we are conscious that the floodlights may well be necessary. If you want to use the lights please contact reception who will be happy to feed your money into the meter. Please remember that reception will only be manned until 8pm so you need to ensure that you feed the meters before they go home. There would be no problem continuing to play after that until the meter runs out.

Tennis Court use update 26 May 2020

Squash Court use update 2 December 2020

Will be available for booking on a similar basis to the pool but slots will be 8am till 7pm on the hour but the last slot will only be 45 minutes to ensure the building is clear by 7:45 to allow staff to close and lock all the facilities. Booking via reception as above.

AED during Covid 19


As you are aware DPML has had an emergency Automated External Defibrillator on the reception desk to assist in the event of a suspected heart attack.

During the lockdown this unit would not be easily accessible to residents. We are also aware the our usual Ambulance emergency response times may be somewhat compromised  in the current situation.

The Trustees are very grateful to accept an offer from David Hyslop who has offered to hold the AED at his house and he will be available 24/7 day or night phone in case of a medical emergency. David has a current Emergency First Aid at Work certificate and he can get to any park residents within about 5 minutes.


In the event of a suspected heart attack FIRST call 999 and get an ambulance on the way. If the ambulance ETA is more than a few minutes ring David on 07836 521393 and he will get to you ASAP.

Remember that early intervention with an AED can make a major difference in case of a heart attack.

PLEASE do not call David for cases of suspect COVID19 related problems as he does not have PPE to manage such cases
