By now we are all aware of the severity of Coronavirus and the impact it will have on our lives in the coming weeks and months.
We wanted to let you know how we are dealing with it at the Avalon Marshes. Safety is our top priority and we are closely monitoring Coronavirus (Covid-19) updates in order to act quickly, and are following advice from the Government and World Health Organisation.
In line with government advice, and to play our part in not spreading Covid-19, we are cancelling all events and volunteer activities until further notice, and will keep this under review as updates emerge.
As regards the Avalon Marshes Centre, Somerset Crafts and the Information Point will be CLOSED until further notice. However, the café and outdoor seating will remain OPEN, as will the public toilets, with Government advice regarding non-entry for those with coughs or fevers.
Our nature reserves are open and remain excellent places to unwind with wildlife, get fresh air, headspace and exercise, away from any crowd if you are not in government advised self-isolation.
Please see the individual partner organisations’ social media and websites for further details. Thank you.
