A statement about Coronavirus COVID-19 from Heeley City Farm;

The spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a concern for all of us and we’re taking the situation seriously.


We are keeping up to date with advice from (i) NHS England and (ii) Department of Health and Social Care which you can find on their websites: https://www.gov.uk/…/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-fo… and https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ (both very clear and informative).

The government site gives clear guidance on what to do (e.g. self-isolate) if you have returned from visiting any of the affected areas, whether you are experiencing symptoms or not. Anyone with a "new, continuous" cough or high temperature is now advised to self-isolate for seven days, as the UK government moves to the "delay" phase of its plan to tackle coronavirus.


We are putting practical measures in place in our building to help reduce the spread of the virus.

We have closed all enclosures we are able to at the Farm. As we are an open site some of the some of the areas are still open to walk around, for your daily exercise, but if you do come to the Farm please follow the giovernment and the site's guidelines;

  • Social distancing - stay 2-3 metres away from each other at all times
  • Wash your hands - wash your hands thoroughly for a minimum of 20 seconds, there are sinks around the site to do this
  • Do not come to the Farm if you are showing symptoms or feeling unwell


Please take advice from NHS and the Government - was your hands regularly with soap and water, cough into elbows or into a tissue.


IF YOU ARE FEELING UNWELL PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE FARM. We are an open We have many vulnerable people who come to and use the farm who the World Health Organisation would class as "At Risk".


Thank you,
All at Heeley City Farm
