Whilst there should be no need to panic in the current situation, it is clear that (at the time of writing, at least) there are some tricky times ahead for some people. If you go down with any illness and find that you have to self-isolate or have to stay at home because you fall into the elderly/vulnerable category, and especially if you don’t have any contact with family, friends or neighbours, please feel free to get in touch with us and we will do our best to get shopping, pick up medication or just have a chat on the phone.
Due to the Coronavirus the Bog Visitor Centre will stay closed until further notice.
