In pictures: Families enjoy Northampton play areas as lockdown restrictions ease

As lockdown restrictions ease and pubs, bars and restaurants reopen, so do play areas.

From today (July 4), outdoor play areas and outdoor gym equipment are now permitted for use, according to the latest Government guidelines.

And plenty of families were keen to get out and make the most of the new rules after the play areas had been off limits for more than three months.

The large play area in Abington Park was the chosen spot for many as children enjoyed the equipment.

There were also people keen to support the local cafe and there was even a socially distanced dance class with Ashby Dance School, in the park.

Below are pictures of Abington Park, including the dance class, as play areas reopen.
