Managing risk: learning to live with COVID-19 and other dangers

Warning sign: 'Slow down children playing'

It is a reminder that we are cautiously embracing a new world in which we learn to live with COVID-19 while going about our business and leisure pursuits as normally as possible. On that theme, parents are understandably asking when the 'jungle' natural play area and the children's playground on the recreation... Read More »

'The crisis is far from over: things are not back to normal and we are still in the middle of a pandemic.'

People standing together talking near the Devils Kneading Trough, Wye. Despite being surrounded by acres of open space, some people are failing to social distance and putting themselves and others at risk.
