The Director of Care and Health for Staffordshire has said that Building Based Day Services can now reopen so long as they are ‘COVID compliant’. This means that social distancing and infection control (hygiene, PPE etc.) are maintained and fully risk assessed.
Oak Tree Farm Rural Project will be working towards opening in a reduced way over the next few weeks. So that we can minimise the risk of the virus spreading, we will not be able to open to all Team Members and those that do attend will do so at reduced level.
The farm will remain closed to visitors.
The Oak Leaf Tea Room, shop and plant sales will remain closed.
We will be in touch with families and carers in due course to discuss individual Team Members. Those people that we are unable to offer sessions at the Farm will continue to be supported remotely.
I look forward to welcoming Team Members back to the farm, whilst recognising it may be some months before everyone can return. On behalf of the staff and Trustees I would like to thank you for your understanding and continued support of Oak Tree Farm.
David Moreton, General Manager
