Enjoy Our Local Park

We’re still not running official sessions, for safety reasons but you may notice some of our team quietly working away in the park.

  • Covid-19: Our park is still open at the moment but we’re not running official gardening until we feel it is safe for us to do so, as we work in public spaces.
  • If you use the Wildlife Area, please respect those who are seeking a quiet area, free from joggers and dogs.

On 9 September, the government announced further measures including new social contact rules which are simpler and will help us to control the virus as we move into winter.

The overwhelming majority of the British public have complied with the regulations and guidance on how to keep themselves, and their friends and family, as safe as possible. It is essential that everyone in the country goes about their lives in a manner which reduces the risk of transmission, whether they are at work, leisure, or using public services. When you leave your home, you should follow the guidelines on meeting with others safely.

You should continue to avoid close contact and remain socially distant from anyone you do not live with or who is not in your support bubble.

It is critical that everybody observes the following key behaviours:

  • HANDS – Wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds.
  • FACE – Wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
  • SPACE – Stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors).
