Because of the Coronavirus it is very important to be extra vigilant when out for a walk and avoid touching surfaces wherever possible. The most frequently used path appears to be the Cross Bucks Way via the Pound. The gates have latches so surface contact is unavoidable, so please wear disposable gloves or use a tissue or piece of kitchen towel that can protect your hands and be disposed of immediately in the waste bin. If you are unsure about touching the gates please avoid going through them and take another route as it is vital that we all stay as safe as we can.
When you come into contact with other people remain at least two meters away from each other as virus droplets can travel through the air.
Please make sure that the gates on all walks are kept securely closed to prevent livestock from leaving the fields. In these difficult times we must all work together and be alert to prevent the spread of this deadly infection.
