To ensure the safety of mourners and staff in the Eternal Forest, the following precautions will be taken with immediate effect.
Please do not visit the wood if you or anyone in your household are showing any symptoms of the virus, if you are feeling unwell, or if anyone in your household is self-isolating because of possible infection during the previous 14 days.
When visiting the wood, please observe physical distancing of at least 2 metres from anyone from outside your household.
Please wash your hands before and after your trip to the wood and wear gloves or use alcohol hand gel after touching the gate or toilet door handles.
Only use the toilet facilities if absolutely necessary and wash your hands or use alcohol hand gel before and after use.
The carpark has a maximum capacity of 8 cars at any time. During a funeral 2-3 spaces will be taken by staff and the funeral car, so mourners will be restricted to a maximum of 5 cars, and are reminded that they should only share a car with people from their own household. When parking, please leave 2.5 metres between cars.
These restrictions are necessary to prevent the spread of the Covid 19 virus and are subject to review as official advice changes.
