About the Event

Following on from COP26, the final months of 2021 saw us consider what we can offer to address the concerns and needs of Shaftesbury households and what public events could feature in 2022. A description of the outputs of our December meeting was included in a blogpost. Early in 2022, our covid-cautious approach led to our main meetings going online with the expectation that we will not return to an in-person monthly gathering at the Town Hall before March. 

We will be operating cautiously in this environment where Covid is circulating and have set out the detail of this in the notes below. Register on Eventbrite (link below). Meeting will start at 7.30. The hall will be open from 7pm - come early to help set up!

Covid precautions:

Of course, if you have any Covid-like symptoms you should stay at home but, if you're well and want to come along, what do you need to do? What steps are being taken to increase safety for participants?

To join a meeting safely please:

  • Register through Eventbrite. You won’t need a ticket but this enables us to set a limit on numbers so that we don't become over-crowded.
  • Expect it to be similar to going to a café under Covid guidelines in June 2021: we’re encouraging you to come along a few minutes early to sign in, wear a mask on entry until seated and use the sanitiser which will be available.
  • During breaks make full use of outside areas for distanced mingling and mask up for moving around inside.
  • Feedback and suggestions will be appreciated by email to Rachel,

Planet Shaftesbury’s ‘Covid-cautious’ preparations:

  • Meetings will have a clear theme and focus and we'll be functioning well within the recommended 50% of the Town Hall’s capacity.
  • Chairs, and tables if being used, will be arranged to enable social distancing.
  • The room will be well ventilated.
  • Any break will be long enough to meet everyone’s needs without risk of crowding to access the w/c or refreshments.
  • Any discussion during a meeting will be managed in a way that enables us to maintain safe distances.
  • We'll continue to work within the framework of a comprehensive risk assessment responding to national rules, advisory guidance, local statistics, common sense and feedback received.
