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.

It is essential that no un-authorised people are allowed onto the plots for the duration of this emergency, if you do wish to bring someone to assist with work on the plot, please ensure that that this is notified either to Secretary or Site Manager. 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.

Allotment tenants should take the following precautionary measures:

Keep hand sanitiser in your shed and wash your hands regularly

Use hand sanitiser before opening and closing any gate locks

DO NOT gather together for a chat even if you are 2 metres apart.

Observe “Social Distancing” with each other 2-3 metres

If you take your children to the plot, ensure that they stay within its confines and do not run around on communal paths and spaces.

Do not share tools

Minimise the contact with each other for example no handshakes

Do not wash your hands in water troughs.
