For covid safety Hand gel, face coverings and visors are available for your use. I have recently rearranged the seating to ensure at least 1m distance between work stations. I hope this doesn’t detract from the experience at all. I’m asking all visitors to wash their hands on entering and leaving the workshop for the consideration of each other.
