Phase one- meeting on the green when groups can meet up, bringing own chair and food
Phase Two-more aug/sept meetings inside sheds for under 70’s with maintaining the guidelines and only when the alert level is 3 or below
They have also had some info regarding isolation sent through from one you kent to share with the network.
