This situation will be reviewed towards the end of January 2021. When they are in operation a full risk assesment is carried out for each task and takes account of Covid 19 working conditions including social distancing, hand and implement sanitising, no tool sharing and for the time being we ask all attending volunteers to bring their own refreshments.
