Update/Advice for all visitors to Sproughton Burial Ground
Sproughton Burial Ground is an unsupervised open community space. There are no handwashing or toilet facilities in the Burial Ground.
No-One diagnosed or tested for Covid-19, and no one experiencing any Covid19 Symptoms as defined by NHS/Government current guidance is permitted to visit the Sproughton Burial Ground.
As there is only one entrance anyone arriving must stand clear of the gate to allow anyone leaving to exit with 2 meters clearance.
Then walk directly ahead onto the central path and follow one-way route on plan above.
A one-way route is not possible on the right side so respect the needs of anyone else visiting the same area and co-operate to maintain safe social distancing.
Return to gate via the path on the left side of the Burial Ground (right side leaving).
There is a high probability that other visitors could be clinically, or extremely clinically vulnerable so maintain 2 metre social distancing with anyone you don’t know and follow current government advice in all other cases.
Any interaction with other visitors needs to be done with common sense, caution and mutual respect.
Visitors should follow Government/NHS guidance on use of hand sanitisers, face coverings, social distancing and group meetings as for any other public space.
As a minimum we require that anyone attending the Burial ground should conform to the current government Covid19 guidelines for any open public space.
