Wildlife Trust nature reserves open but social distancing encouraged
Wiltshire Wildlife Trust has confirmed that its nature reserves remain open to the public but has encouraged people to ensure they maintain social distancing to avoid further spread of coronavirus.
“Our nature reserves are open and remain excellent places to unwind with wildlife and get some fresh air and exercise away from crowds. The UK government's guidance on Social Distancing recognises the value of going for a walk outdoors if you stay more than two metres from other," said Chief Executive Dr Gary Mantle MBE
In accordance with government advice, the Trust is cancelling or postponing planned events and activities until further notice.
It has also closed the Kingfisher Café at Langford Lakes, and the reserve itself is also closed for essential maintenance until 6th April. The toilets at Lower Moor Farm have also been closed to prevent further spread of the virus.
