Sandfields Re-opening to Volunteers

Following recent government advice issued through the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and taking into account the falling levels of new cases of Corona virus, the trustees have decided to re-open Sandfields to volunteers only from Tuesday 20th April. We shall open on a Tuesday and Friday morning from 1000 hours until 1230 hours until further notice.

The pumping station is allowed to open under Covid secure precautions and these are covered by the procedure below. This is similar to the procedure used when we opened up after the last lockdown but now includes advice on travelling and testing. For this reason I would ask all volunteers to read the procedure and determine whether they are confident to return.

We have a great deal of work to do both inside and outside the building, so if you are more comfortable working outside then this can be accommodated. It is because of the amount of work that requires progressing, that we have decided to open two mornings a week. Feel free to choose whichever is more suitable or come on both days, we shall be pleased to see you.

We all hope that we will be able to continue opening up indefinitely but we will monitor the situation constantly and implement any changes that are required.

    Thanks for your continued updates. I am a huge supporter of all the excellent work you have done and continue to do at sandfiields.

    I know all your efforts are the result of a team of dedicated and skilled volunteers. I imagine that you are looking at ways to increase the breadth of support in this area to truly reflect and involve the local community.

    It strikes me that opening up only on weekdays restricts this opportunity considerably for younger folk who cannot get time off during the week.

    I was wondering if you had considered weekend opening to attract a broader cross section of volunteers?

    Best wishes
