Revised 10th September
In recognition that Hedgerow Harvest has confirmed that they have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social/physical distancing.
We have now read the new social gathering rules and are pleased to say that our Fruit and Nut course, Mushroom/Fungi walks and Family Foraging Walk (fungi) will all run. We have / are taking reasonable steps to mitigate the risk of transmission in line with COVID-19 Secure guidance, including completion of a risk assessment.
"Guided tours of up to 30 people may take place indoors or outdoors provided businesses undertake risk assessments in line with this guidance document and put any necessary mitigations in place". Working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19): The visitor economy
We started running events on 11th July. All planned events after that date are scheduled to run and will follow COVID-19 Secure guidelines. This may mean their content may be modified. If you are booked to attend, we appreciate that such changes may mean some of you would rather wait for a more “normal” course or do not want to attend such events yet. In either case, you can transfer to events of equal value (1 whole day or 2 walks (except the booze walk that has a supplementary cost)) in this season or next. We will be in touch about a month before events to give you joining instructions and details of any changes to the course content as well as inform you of special measures that need to be taken.
We are also adding in a few replacement events and will contact guests whose events did not run. Not all events can be replaced, for example a Spring course will have to wait until next year. Again, if you want to delay until next year that is fine.
Events will run according to current COVID-19 Secure guidelines around gatherings outdoors. These events are low risk in terms of contracting or spreading the virus due to the numbers involved and outdoor setting.
Please read our Terms and Conditions, with special measures around Coronavirus / COVID-19.
