Covid-19: Volunteering

#TeamHerts Volunteering is working in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council to collect names and details of all those who are interested in volunteering to assist those affected by coronavirus. Volunteers can help by dropping and picking up  essential supplies, offering a friendly voice over the phone or even giving basic support in a care setting. Fill out a quick and easy form HERE. Your details will then be passed over to local organisations who have identified that they require extra support.

Team Herts will then be able to provide you with the details of local people who have indicated they can help out.

Covid-19: Outdoor Spaces

Current government advice is to avoid large and small gatherings in public spaces. You can also go for a walk or exercise outdoors if you stay more than 2 metres from others.

The playground is open access and we cannot lock it, so we strongly urge everyone to follow this instruction. This means:

  • Don’t arrange to meet groups of friends in the playground.
  • Go somewhere else if you can’t maintain the 2 metre distance.
  • Be aware of where your children are and what they are doing.

What does 2 metres look like? This video from the Irish Government may help.

The government has warned that stricter social distancing measures may come into effect if this advice is not widely followed.
