Wellbeing and Safety Advice

As at 2021 November.

We are not offering any covid rules to be followed at our meetings further than those currently set out by the UK government, see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/covid-19-coronavirus-restrictions-what-you-can-and-cannot-do 

but please consider the confidence level of other Irregulars. All attendees have a right to their personal space and a right to speak up. Please avoid crowding others. You are encouraged to speak up if you feel that your proximity comfort zone is being  compromised by others. No inadvertent transgressor will or should take offence  –  and should immediately give space as required.

Attendees are welcome to wear face coverings at their own discretion.

It is polite manners to ask before attempting to observe through another Irregular’s telescope and you asked to avoid touching surfaces. We want meetings to be educational and fun; we have yet to notice an Irregular who is unhappy to share views during meetings.

Any attendee who feels unwell or detects the onset of any Covid-like symptoms should, whilst respecting distance, notify a committee member, then withdraw from the meeting.

In addition please respect the visitor rules of the Royal Parks: https://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/the-regents-park/visitor-information  and any Covid-19 guidelines on display when using the toilets at the Hub and the Benugo cafe.

Our meetings end during the hours of darkness. Please ensure you leave the park in the company of others (if you arrived alone please ask at the meeting for others to accompany you when you exit the park – there are always other Irregulars willing to help). Before attending our meeting it is essential you plan your journey home if you are using the tube, bus, hire bikes or Uber. Consult the relevant travel websites to learn more of your travel options at your planned time of evening travel.
