At last we can announce that the Shed will reopen on Thursday 2 July.
As I mentioned in my last email message, we will be operating under a COVID safety plan with limits on numbers and the need for social distancing, hand sanitising, disinfecting and the like. You would be familiar with these things from the past few months of COVID restrictions and would appreciate the need for cooperation and some forbearance at the Shed.
Our COVID Safe Operating Plan has been emailed to members. Please read it carefully. Note firstly that it poses an important personal consideration for you in deciding on returning to Shed life at the moment.
If you are returning, please read and understand what is expected to make the Shed safe, harmonious and enjoyable. And please think about where you might be able to help out with the various new requirements.
If you have any questions about the Safe Operating Plan or about the Shed reopening generally, please contact any Committee member.
