PROTECT YOURSELF & OTHERS | WASH YOUR HANDS MORE OFTEN FOR 20 SECONDS | Use soap and water or a hand sanitiser when you: get home or into work; blow your nose, sneeze or cough; eat or handle food. For more information and the Government's Action Plan go to nhs.uk/coronavirus.
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home if you have either:
a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.
How long to stay at home
if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days
if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms
If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
Read our advice about staying at home.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
your condition gets worse
your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
Many plotholders have been sent a Notice to Quit in error, on the mistaken basis of non-payment of allotment fees and charges for 2019/20.
Affected plotholders who have contacted idverde have been told that this was due to a known system error and a formal acknowledgement/apology will be sent to those affected. Notices to quit sent in error can be ignored.
Berkeley Homes have, again, kindly donated and delivered to the Site a number of pallets for the use of plotholders on their plots. Berkeley Homes are currently developing Wimbledon Hill Park on Copse Hill.
The delivery of about 16 palettes is to undeveloped Plot 111 beside the Cottenham Park Lane gate.
Wooden pallets have a number of potential uses on a plot, including building a compost bin - a vital feature to reduce valuable green waste leaving the Site. See the links page for links to advice about how to use pallets to build a bin. Berkeley Homes themselves have used other pallets to create benches for builders working at Wimbledon Hill Park.
Many thanks to Theresa Dale, Office Manager and CSS Co-ordinator for Berkeley Homes, and her colleagues for this further generous gift.
