These sessions have been designed in accordance to the latest government guidance on running holiday clubs, they will be held in small groups, social distancing will be in place, there will be minimal equipment used, temperature checks will take place at the start of the session and all participants will sign and follow our additional covid-19 measures. To keep everyone safe, if any students are showing any symptoms consistent with coronavirus they will not be able to take part in the session. As such, during this programme we will not be mucking out animal enclosures.
