COVID-19 outbreak: Government advice issued 2020-03-16 indicates that all unnecessary travel and social gatherings should be avoided.
Therefore until further notice we will be cancelling tasks on a rolling basis, 3-4 weeks ahead of the date of the task. Some clients may also cancel tasks according to their own polices. You may still book uncancelled tasks but it is likely that many of these tasks will be cancelled. When the advice on social distancing changes we will restart our task program.
Any cancellations will be announced on the task list page and by contacting any volunteers who have booked. You can read more about our response to the COVID-19 outbreak here
