Our Latest Statement on Coronavirus

31st May 2020

In view of the rapidly developing coronavirus crisis and its possible implications for our staff, volunteers and visitors, Buxton Civic Association board of trustees have decided that the Cavern, Visitor Centre and Cafe will remain closed to the public until 30th June 2020.

This is a temporary closure. The decision will be reviewed at that time, but will remain under constant review in the meantime.

This is clearly a dynamic rapidly changing emergency situation which we will have to continue to respond rapidly and flexibly to.

The board of trustees continues to meet using video conferencing technology and all groups are being encouraged to do the same.

All our public talks and events for April, May and June are cancelled, but we hope to be able to resume in the autumn. We are looking at running some talks remotely using Zoom and will post details when they are available.

We intend to keep our woods and Buxton Country Park open to the public and we will continue to encourage as many people as possible to use them for exercise and emotional and spiritual refreshment.

We have launched a funding campaign to support the work in the Woods

PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL Woodlands and environmental CHARITY
It has been great to see so many people enjoying our woods, and
we want people to be able to continue to enjoy them but we need to keep them safe by
maintaining the paths
making sure that fallen or falling trees are safely out of the way.

AND Covid - 19 has taken away all our income.

So we are asking you to help us, by texting WOODS to 70450 to donate £3, texts cost £3 plus standard message rate,

Thank you so much for your support. Enjoy the woods and Stay well and safe.
