Play your part in tackling the virus

With hot and sunny weather this weekend, we want you to enjoy our outdoor open spaces and support our local businesses.

It’s important that, whatever you do, you do it safely:

  • Keep your distance from other people

  • Wash your hands as often as possible
  • Take hand sanitiser with you.
  • Don’t forget the sun cream (and a hat)!
