The Foraging Course Company is carefully monitoring instructions from the British Government, Public Health England and NHS regarding the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. All courses will be operating to strict Covid-secure guidelines. 


From 19 July 2021 courses will continue to run with pre-Covid restriction numbers

From 19 July 2021, most Covid and social distancing measures will be relaxed in England.

As our events are outdoors, they are already risked assessed as low risk for Covid transmission.

We already followed high hygiene standards, due to the handling of foodstuffs, pre-pandemic and will continue to do so.

As we are outdoors, people who wish to continue following 1m plus social distancing should find they can do this comfortably. This is something we will encourage.

We also continue to follow current Government Covid transmission reduction guidelines and restrictions that are in place at the time of the course taking place.  

From 17 May 2021 courses will run with normal numbers

Following the Prime Minister's statement on 10 May 2021, our courses will run with up to 15 participants per instructor. We will continue to observe Covid-secure measures. Due to operating outdoors, our events are already risk assessed as very low risk for Covid transmission.

All courses on or after 29 March 2021 are going ahead

Up until 17 May 2021, we will be restricted to six per group so most courses will have more than one instructor to enable larger groups to be split.

From 17 May onwards, we will be increasing numbers steadily
