HAPPY NEW TIER (sic)

It is with heavy hearts that we welcome in the New Year in Coronavirus Tier 4. This of course means that many more local businesses will be forced to close, bringing financial hardship to their owners and dramatically kerbing our daily routines and freedom. The message is simple, “Stay at Home” (see below for guidance). If we all play our part, 14 days isolation should break the spread of the virus. That message really doesn’t seem to have got through on a national basis, which is the reason the new variant is spreading so quickly and why we should expect to be locked down for some time. Tier 4 has to mean we all take more precautions than we did before, even if the level of infection is particularly low in our area.

The Farm Shop is still regarded as an “Essential Service” and although we will be closed for New Years Day, we will be back to normal hours from 2nd January. We had been hoping to reopen the Coffee Shop in the new year but that will have to be postponed for now.

PLEASE STAY AT HOME EXCEPT FOR ESSENTIAL NEEDS (Food and Medicine)

PLEASE STOP INSIDE THE DOOR AND ASK BEFORE ENTERING FURTHER INTO THE SHOP.

PLEASE SHOP ALONE unless absolutely necessary.

PLEASE ALLOW at least 24hrs between placing your order and collection.

DELIVERIES to vulnerable households are currently every Thursday.

CLICK & COLLECT if you feel especially vulnerable.

While our area remains one of the lowest infection rates in the country, the trend has been steadily upwards since the beginning of November. These are the current statistics on the gov.uk website but are already 7 days old. Infections will have risen in the last week.

Current advice for TIER 4. More detail can be obtained from the gov.uk website regarding the interpretation of “Essential” and exception to rules. Please stay safe.
