Garden pop rounds - fresh advice

Updated: Mar 10, 2021

With changes to restrictions taking place at the end of March, doorstep and garden pop-rounds can resume for those who would like to, and who are able to, benefit from such visits.

These visits 'brought me to tears', declared one person visited, because 'I hadn’t seen anyone I know since March.'

Fresh TTTB guidance has been issued this week to ensure best protocols. Chief Executive of TTTB and Anna Chaplain, Emily Kenward, says, 'We are happy to share with partners and other organisations if this is helpful.' For a free copy, contact
