Mayor's attendance at a Community Garden Opening
21 July 2020 at 8:57am
Could you let me know what are the current guidelines during the pandemic. Our Town Mayor has not attended an event/function since before lockdown. I have received an invitation for him to attend the opening of a Community Garden next month. Presumably a risk assessment will need to be in place. Is that something I would do, or the Community Group? Is the Mayor still in order to attend at the present time?

Our local authority are following the government guidelines and have incorporated these into our own, tailored guidance for the Mayor and events they may attend in person. We have a social distancing protocol document which we share along with out usual protocol (these will, shortly, become one document). I would ask the requestor to provide assurances, preferably risk assessed, that the Mayor and all attending will be able to do so safely, either as per the government guidelines on social gatherings or with relevant PPE. Hope that helps
