Conservation work parties at Myers Allotment will commence on Tuesday 6 October 2020 at 10:00am.

Please note that all work parties are subject to local lockdown measures and to changes in government policy. For example, no volunteer should travel from a 'local lockdown area' where there are restrictions on travel. Please also keep an eye on our branch page for updates as the situation is constantly changing.

You should read Butterfly Conservation's Covid-19 secure guidelines´╗┐ for field-based activities and also the risk assessment before attending any work party.

If, prior to the work party, you develop symptoms of Covid-19 or if you have been in contact with others who are unwell with possible Covid-19 symptoms, or you have been told to be in quarantine or to self-isolate under the track and trace system, you must not attend the work party. At the start of the work party, participants will be asked to confirm their freedom from Covid-19 symptoms in the previous ten days. Car sharing is not recommended, but, if necessary, follow government guidelines, i.e. wear a mask, open car windows for ventilation and sanitise contact surfaces. Tools will be sanitised before and after use and quarantined ready for the next work party. Tools should not be shared. Protective gloves and safety glasses will be provided and should be taken home to ensure they are not shared, or, better still, bring your own.

Hand sanitiser will be provided, but bring your own if you prefer. If you have any queries, please contact Dave Wrigley (reserves@lancashire-butterflies.org.uk).
