ESSENTIAL INFORMATION FOR ALL VISITORS TO GARDEN WALK

The Club would like to remind all visitors to Garden Walk about the need to remain vigilant about the continued threat of COVID-19. Like many clubs, a whole team of hard-working volunteers have made great efforts to ensure that games are staged at Garden Walk in the safest manner for both participants and spectators alike, but we do have concerns that not all visitors and supporters have followed all of the guidance that we have put in place. These guidelines have been implemented for the safety and well-being of all visitors to our ground. For football to continue it is imperative that all fans and visitors follow the guidelines set out below and within our COVID-19 plan. Failure to do so could result in the club receiving a sizeable fine and may lead to reduced capacity.
