Forge Island walk-in testing centre now up-and-running

Rotherham’s new walk-through Covid-19 testing site at Forge Island is now open.

The facility, which is operated by the Department of Health and Social Care, is open to the public from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week for the next 12 weeks and is in addition to the drive-through site at Midland Road.

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms, however mild, or those who are concerned that they have been in contact who is COVID-19 positive, is being urged to get tested as soon as possible.

Both the new walk-in and drive through sites are operating an appointments system to ensure that tests are available for everyone who needs one.

Financial Audit – Year Ended 31 March 2020

Documents relating to the Annual Governance & Accountability Return for the year ended 31 March 2020:


Further Vandalism

It was only Wednesday that we reported acts of vandalism against the signage that’s required to open the park and yet by Friday in the same week it has happened again!

The parish council absolutely does not have the resources to deal with this vandalism.

Offenders will be reported to the police with a view to prosecution and further incidents may result in the closure of both grounds.



Unfortunately we have some bad news.

The parish council have worked hard to open our recreational spaces (and in fact our spaces are now open whist others are closed) but we have experienced some mindless vandalism.

This is so disappointing.

The instruction signs (which are a requirement) have been pulled out and destroyed and left in a dangerous state. If this occurs again we will have no choice but to close the areas. It took a great deal of time, effort and cost to open the recreation ground and church playground.

If there are any other incident(s) we will have no choice but to close the grounds and keep them closed which will deprive everyone of the facility.

Please be safe and vigilant everyone.


Recreation ground update!

Good news! In accordance with Government Guidance the Recreation Ground and Church Playground, along with its equipment is open from today! (18th July 2020)

Please remember; It is extremely important that you adhere to the “2 Metre” Social distancing rule at all times for everyone’s safety. Failure to comply may result in the grounds being closed again. Further guidance is displayed at the locations via signage. Usage of the sites and equipment indicate you have read and accepted the guidance displayed on site.

The Rec and Church Playground will be closed at 7pm each day to facilitate the equipment being disinfected for the following days use. This will be until further notice.

I’d just like to thank all the parish councilers that were involved in the work required and who have volunteered their time to be able to get these facilities open to you all as fast as possible!
