We have now restarted our courses.
We are still working on getting our August courses reconfirmed with our venues, some of which haven’t fully opened yet so we may still have to cancel some courses. Once we have permission to go ahead with the course we will open it up for bookings, so any course that is currently showing available places will be going ahead.
For anyone already booked, or who would like to book please read the following information carefully.
If in the last 10 days you, anyone in your household or support bubble have had any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste), have tested positive for coronavirus or have been told by NHS Test and Trace that you have been in contact with a person with coronavirus please do not attend the course. Simply let us know as soon as you can and we can either move you on to a later course or provide you with a refund.
We will be observing social distancing on the course, each household/bubble must keep 2m apart, where this is not possible the 1m plus rule will be followed. Despite government guidelines allowing for groups of up to 30 people on events such as ours we will be limiting the course numbers to 15 participants or less in order to make it easier to socially distance.
We also ask that when the group is in close proximity discussing plants or mushrooms that masks are worn. These can be removed when walking or when the group is more dispersed.
Everyone on the course will be required to wear a face mask, so we kindly ask that you bring your own. Please also bring your own plate, cup and cutlery for the meal at the end of the course. If you do forget to bring any of the above then we will have some that you can use.
Please arrive promptly. Upon arrival to the course your course leader will need to confirm a name and contact phone number for each group, for the NHS track and trace system.
The safety of our customers and course leaders is of the upmost importance so we ask that anyone who does not want to follow these guidelines does not attend the course. Anyone refusing to follow our coronavirus safety guidelines on the day will be asked to leave the course.
More information on coronavirus can be found on the NHS and Gov websites.
