Temporary closure with immediate effect

Good afternoon. So after listening to the update from the first minister, we have taken the difficult decision to close the Farm for the time being. This will be effective from today and will be reviewed weekly. Travelling outside your area is not advisable and we feel we would not be able to guarantee anyone’s safety., as we have many visitors from outside the Renfrewshire area. We don’t have the capacity to enforce ID checks as we have animals to look after and vital work that needs done daily. The numbers in certain areas are seeing a sharp increase and we feel the risk of areas mixing at the farm increases the risk to not only the volunteers but to other visitors. In recent weeks we have seen a rise in people verbally abusing our volunteers with regards to the current guidelines and we feel this could be made worse by excluding areas outside Renfrewshire from visiting. This is not a decision we have taken lightly, but feel it’s the safest one at this time. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please stay safe and we hope to welcome everyone back soon. Thank you all so much for your support.
