Please ensure that you do a lateral flow test on the morning before coming to any indoor event (restaurant/private home). We have worked hard to keep ourselves free of Covid and with winter approaching want to stay as healthy as possible and Covid free. This is important not only to protect ourselves but also our friends and to keep the Blueberry Muffins running. Moreover please do not attend any event if you have any symptoms usually associated with Covid even if you have had a negative test. Many thanks
