When considering starting the Market again, we decided that the safety of the community must be our highest priority and to this end we will be doing the following on Market days: -
(a) Having fewer stalls inside the Hall to allow adequate spacing.
(b) Strongly encouraging the wearing of face coverings by everyone in indoor public areas if they can. By that we mean the hall and toilet facilities. All Art Plumstead volunteers will be following this guidance.
(c) In the Hall we will have the main doors and all the fire doors open, together with the windows to get maximum air flow.
(d) Volunteers will be monitoring the toilet area and sanitising, as necessary.
(e) Hand sanitising facilities will be available at the main entrance. As businesses, it will be down to you to manage your stall area as you see fit, being mindful of the public’s safety.
(f) Hot food, together with hot and cold drinks, will be prepared and served outside the hall where tables and chairs will be situated for the public to eat and drink.
The first Market of 2022 will take place on.....
