Shown is the sign that will be placed at all entrances to the woodland in order to remind everyone of the need to practice social distancing from one another (including when using the bird hide).
One member of the public has written to the woodland trustees to ask that the bird hide be dismantled (or placed out of bounds during this worrying time) as a large number of young persons are using the shelter (not for the purposes of birdwatching!) and are apparently unable to practice social distancing from each other
The concern is that many young people feel they are insulated from Covid-19 and they will spread it to the most vulnerable in society.
The trustees are asking that those of us in a position to influence behaviour in the community remind our young people of the need to "socially distance" themselves in order to protect us all.
