COVID-19 previous updates - 2-3 May
Plans may have changed during the coronavirus lockdown, but you can still mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day next Friday (8 May) from home.
Although street parties and group gatherings can no longer go ahead on the bank holiday, English Heritage has come up with a number of activities (external link) to get into the spirit.
Why not use the hashtag #VEDay75 and show others on social media how you are marking this historic day?
The government has also created a toolkit (external link) to help you print off your own bunting and window posters. Find out more on the VE Day 75 website (external link) and on GOV.UK (external link).
Staff at Gladesmore Community School have been keeping themselves busy and occupied while the school remains closed by making face shields for frontline key workers.
Project lead, technology teacher Colleen Jose, has been assisted by colleagues from other subject areas - such as Art, English and Languages - who have all turned their hands to operating technology equipment, including a laser cutter to manufacture the face shields.
Ravneesh Atwal, Colleen Jose, Viktorijia Osipova, Alexis O’Brien and German Penalver proudly delivered 200 face screens to Priscilla Wakefield House Nursing Home and 100 face screens to Peregrine House in Tottenham this week. The school has supplied 1,000 home-produced face shields for care homes in the local area.
Gladesmore are now collaborating with the St Albans-based Nicholas Breakspear School, so they can also supply care workers with face shields in Hertfordshire.
Ms Jose commented:
“We wanted to help care workers and NHS staff. We have the skills and equipment to make high-quality PPE so we have been happy to do our best to support them.”
Gladesmore chief executive Tony Hartney CBE said:
“We are enormously grateful to all key workers for their contributions during the pandemic. Care workers and nurses are doing an incredible job and face risks every day, so I am very proud that Gladesmore staff have been able to help. They have given generously of their time to make this large batch of face shields to help keep them safe while they care for our community.”
We’re working hard to keep our parks open, and we really need your continued help and support.
We know many of you are relying on our open spaces for exercise during the coronavirus pandemic.
However, please follow the social distancing guidance and stay at least two metres away from other park users.
You should only be in our parks to either cycle, jog or walk by yourself or with members from the same household. We are also urging cyclists and joggers to take special heed of the social distancing measures in place to ensure the safety of everyone using our parks for exercise.
If you’re walking your dog, please keep them on a lead. Our officers are on patrol daily and those allowing dogs to roam free face a £100 fine. This is only temporary during the COVID-19 pandemic and has been put in place to ensure people are able to remain a safe distance from each other.
- Have barbeques, picnics, or go sunbathing
- Use the outdoor gym equipment and facilities - they are closed
- Exercise in groups
Please also remember to wash your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds once you’re back indoors.
If you’re not in our parks to exercise, please stay home. This will help to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, protect the NHS and save lives.
We’re really grateful to everyone who has been following the rules. Thank you.
