    Based on the Government’s “roadmap” we can go back to volunteering again from Monday 29th March!

    We are all looking forward to getting back to those jobs we can see building up. However, you and your volunteers need to feel safe – so only return to volunteering when you feel comfortable doing so. You might want to start small with some litter picking with the regulars before you start inviting more people to join you.

    We have updated the Covid-19 Safe Operating Policy and Risk Assessment used by the Friends of Cotteridge Park on our Toolkit page.
    You can adapt these templates to fit your site and they can be seen by clicking the links.  The risk assessment should be used before each volunteering session.  The policy can be used for the group to decide how they want to work.

    If you have any questions contact BOSF or your Park Manager or Ranger
