Coronavirus: Spalding event cancelled , Holbeach estate agent moves to protect public and schools announce plans




An event has been cancelled this weekend and schools and businesses have announced contingency plans as the area continues to prepare for coronavirus.

An open weekend at Chain Bridge Forge in High Street, Spalding has been cancelled this weekend as a number of the visitors are in the high risk group and would be wearing VR headsets, which would increase the risk of infection.

The club will continue with a blacksmithing taster day on Saturday and usual activities on Sunday.

Meanwhile, estate agent Hill & Clark, of Holbeach, have made moves to protect landlords, tenants, contractors and staff.

They say property inspections will be cancelled if tenants have travelled overseas since the start of 2020, have any symptoms of Covid-19, been in contact with anyone with symptoms or been been advised to self-isolate. All other viewings will continue as normal.

Spalding High School and Grammar School have written letters to parents explaining contingency plans.

High head Michele Anderson told parents said staff are holding regular meetings and consultations to review, process and reconcile the ongoing and frequently updated information.

GSCE and A-level exams are currently still planned to go ahead at the scheduled dates. In the event of the government issuing a school closure notice, teachers will communicate with students and parents via the homepage of the school website and email. Work for each year group will be available via a downloadable document from the school website.

School trips and activities are still going ahead at the moment.

Grammar head Steven Wilkinson said his school has made also contingency arrangements should the Government issue a closure notice to schools. Teachers will email work to students in the event of any closure.
