The picnic patches will be defined by painted lines in the grass - 3m wide x 3m deep
Patrons will be encouraged to use hand sanitisers as they enter and leave Beechwood park, and are advised to wear face coverings at their discretion.

Patrons who are accompanied by children are responsible for supervising them at all times and ensuring they follow social distancing guidelines.
Perspex screens, where applicable will be used and we will use ‘put down - pick up’ as much as possible, rather than passing goods hand to hand.
