Therfield Heath Visitor UPDATE – 29th May 2020

With the Heath slowly making its way back to full use, we would ask all our visitors to take note of the following advice/restrictions. Let’s all think of each other as we enjoy the Heath.

Thank you for your co-operation,

The Conservators

BBQs – are not permitted anywhere on the Heath.

Bins – if bins are full, please take your rubbish or dog-waste home for disposal.  Our staff are stretched beyond capacity and are currently having to empty bins every other day – this compares to once a week prior to the pandemic.  Please help us keep the Heath clean and tidy. 

Cycling – Cycling is not permitted on the Heath at any time.

Social distancing – Please remember the requirements on individuals to socially distance and not gather in groups. We ask that you remain up to date with Government guidance about remaining safe while outside your home https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/staying-safe-outside-your-home/staying-safe-outside-your-home it is your responsibility to adopt these principles wherever possible.

Car Parks – For those who wish to travel some distance to visit the Heath, the car parks remain open.  If one car park is full please use an alternative.  Please do park with consideration giving space to other visitors, and be patient.  We would ask you to not block any entrances or prevent access for emergency vehicles.  Please do not park outside the car park, or on any grass areas.

Café – The Heath Café remains closed and there are no public toilets nearby.

Sports – It is important for those who have enjoyed exercising on the fairways to be aware of golfers and the resumption of golf.  Please do what you can to help the Golf Club successfully operate in a ‘covid-19 secure’ way and especially socially distance from the marshals and greenkeeping staff.

Dogs – We remind dog owners that if you think your dog will not recall such that you may have to break social distancing to control your dog then it should be on lead.

Byelaws – Please remember there are a set of bylaws in place to protect the site and to keep visitors safe. Do please check these before you visit.  http://www.therfieldheath.org.uk/the-bye-laws/

Please be kind and respectful to fellow visitors – everyone needs to be able to enjoy the Heath safely.
