Coronavirus

Updated Friday 3rd April March, 21:10

The Enfield Society is keeping its activities under review as a result of coronavirus.

Following the change in Government advice on Monday 16th March, we have decided to cancel all planned talks and walks scheduled for March and April, including the litter-pick on the 26th March.

Following updated Government advice on Monday 23rd March, we have decided to close our online store. This is necessary to reduce the risk to our volunteers which could arise from having to post out items.

As no one is sure how long the Government will wish us to curtail social gatherings, its is quite possible that our programme will be cancelled in May and beyond, but we will be monitoring the situation and will advice members by e-mail, on this web-page and via our Facebook page.

Cancelled events:

April

  • Walk 12th April (Enfield)
  • Walk 18th April (London Loop)
  • Walk 22nd April (New River)
  • Walk 26th April (Wartime Enfield)
  • Talk 28th April (Queen Victoria’s rooms)
  • Walk 30th April (Hidden London)

Jubilee Hall now closed

As from Wednesday 18th March all events booked at Jubilee Hall have been cancelled. This obviously goes beyond the Enfield Society as the Hall is used by a large number of local groups.

Stay at home to stop Coronavirus spreading

This advice is from the Healthwatch Enfield

The single most important action we can all take, in fighting Coronavirus is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection. That is why the Government has introduced new measures to tackle the spread of coronavirus, including a ban on public gatherings of more than two people.

According to guidance, you should now only leave the house for one of four reasons:

  1. Shop for basic essentials – only when you really need to.
  2. One form of exercise a day – such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with.
  3. Medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person.
  4. Travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary.
