Surviving 2020 and Covid 19

UPDATE  - Well , we are open again - but for how long, who knows?

What a trial 2020 is turning out to be for so many people.

One of the things we keep hearing from visitors, is that they are happy that we can give them that "little bit of normal" that they have been missing.

And we are so happy that we can do this.

If you have visited recently, you will notice that we have had to add a few extra rules and regulations in line with local and national recommendations. We have had to set in place a one way system.
We have put up signs, closed off some areas, spread out the picnic tables, cleared away undergrowth to widen paths, and generally done all we can to keep you safe when you visit.

But if we are to stay open, we need your support.
We need you to take note of the signs we have put up around the farm.
We need you to keep your distance from people not from your household - and we know how hard that can be.

We know how much the children have missed the playground and how tempting it is to jump right in, but we have to follow the rules - one family at a time please - and be fair - there will be lots of people waiting.
Have your turn and let someone else have a go.
Thank you.

We have done what we can to increase hand washing facilities around the farm.
We have installed a new washbasin close to the play ground for those little hands that want to dive straight into their lunch.
We have topped up the towels,  filled up the soaps and after a busy day, we bring in specialist cleaners to make such the toilets are squeaky clean for your visit.

Of course, this all costs money and we still aim to keep  the farm free for all to access, so please drop us a small donation if you pop to the loo - we are doing our best to keep them clean and safe for everyone.

And thank you for your amazing support.
You really have kept us going and we hope that one day, when things are really "normal" again, we hope we can all get together and have a great big party to celebrate.

Until then, please read the signs, stick to the rules and look after each other.

PS We hope you like the improvements we have made. We have done a lot of painting and cleaning!

Thank you.
Tam O'Shanter Urban Farm exists to promote the preservation of the building known as Tam O'Shanter Cottage for use as a field study centre for the advancement of education in Wirral and to provide and maintain facilities in the interest of social welfare for recreation and leisure time occupation for the inhabitants of the same Borough of Wirral, thereby improving their conditions of life.

We are trying to make sure this continues so we can carry on making memories today for our children and grandchildren.
