Coronavirus Emergency Measures
It is important that any plot-holders over 70 years and those with underlying health issues follow the guidance and information issued by the government. Any plot-holder who is self isolating because a household member is ill with corona-virus should not be visiting the site.
It is important that anyone attending the allotment takes care to stay the appropriate distance from others, avoid body contact and wash hands at taps, do not wash hands or use detergents in the water tanks and please pay attention to notice boards. Careful consideration should be given to introducing anyone over 70, those with underlying illness or pregnant women.
We are living through a crisis, the likes of which none of us has experienced before, not since war time has the community spirit that exists on allotment sites been more important. Please remember to look out for one another during these very difficult times.
Members should take the following precautionary measures :
Keep hand sanitiser onsite and wash your hands regularly
Use hand sanitiser before opening and closing any gate locks
Observe “Social Distancing” with each other 2-3 metres
Do not share tools
Minimise the contact with each other for example no handshakes
Do not wash your hands in water troughs
Stay away from vulnerable individuals such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions as much as possible
If you display any symptoms of coronavirus stay at home and self-isolate for at least 14 days or until symptoms have passed.
