Tuesday 4th January: Work Party: Those wishing to eat breakfast should meet at the Roadhouse Cafe in Clydach at 8am. Volunteers should assemble at 9am at the Glan Rhyd Industrial Estate [Pontardawe SA8 3HZ] where we will continue to remove fallen branches and weed from the cut between Riverside and Ynysmeudwy [a boat will be used].

Refreshments will be provided but NOT mugs. You must bring your own.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: At the present time {Friday 31st December 2021}, outdoor gatherings of up to fifty people are permitted. The relevant Welsh Government regulations and guidance include, but are not limited to:

We are also advising everyone to take a Lateral Flow Test before you meet anyone socially, whether you are meeting them inside or outside. If the Lateral Flow Test is positive, you should self-isolate and book a PCR test.

We are more likely to catch coronavirus from – and pass it on to – people we are in close contact with every day. The omicron variant spreads particularly easily. The safest thing to do is to avoid contact with other people you do not live with. We would strongly recommend you limit who you have in your home and consider forming an exclusive household with a limited number of other households.

People are asked to consider not just what they can do – what the law allows them to do – but what they should do – what is the right thing to do to minimise the spread of coronavirus. In particular, we ask you to:

  • Please try and be restrained in how many different people you see. It is better to see the same five people regularly than to see lots of different people occasionally

  • If you are meeting with different groups of people, please try to space out those visits by at least 24 hours.

  • Please maintain 2 metre physical distance, including outdoors, from anyone you do not live with

  • Avoid doing activities that might increase the risk of transmission (for example shouting to be heard over loud music, or singing in close proximity)
