We are delighted that some level of volunteering can recommence within Medway Council’s greenspaces but, even though the situation is improving, everyone must continue to be kept safe.
The restrictions we have include continued social distancing, wearing masks and gloves and making sure hand sanitiser is available. Please see this link for full guidance on how we can meet.
Perhaps a low-level activity, such as picnic or a walk for your Friends Group just to catch up and share lockdown stories would be a good way to start, or an outdoor meeting to plan your next few months’ tasks and litter picks. Remember that the rules are clear: a maximum of 6 people can meet at any one time.
You can also have a think about how you can grow your group as so many people have come to realise the true value of their local greenspace and are now keen to help take care for them.
There’s still plenty of summer left, so let us plan ahead and enjoy the fresh air!
