We hope that all our residents and families are in good health and coping well in this unusual situation.
We are extremely fortunate to have a beautiful communal garden where we can get some much needed fresh air and enjoy the spring that is bursting forth to cheer us.
Following current government guidelines the gardens will remain open to residents. We are sure that you all will remember to respect the personal space of neighbours and remember the social distancing guidelines in order to keep yourself and others safe and well.
Playgrounds all over London have been closed and we advise parents not to allow their children to use the play area in the garden. We understand that the virus can survive on metal and plastic for several days https://www.nejm.org/doi/10.1056/NEJMc2004973
