Staying Safe This Summer

Summertime is a great season for children, young people and families to get outdoors and experience different activities. It is important to remember to risk assess any new activities and follow external visits guidance before going out for the day.  Extra care must also be taken to social distance whilst the Coronavirus is still circulating.
