COVID-19 Update

UKMSA take great interest in the government’s latest easing of lockdown. We are awaiting guidance from ACRE, and government agencies, with regards the news that community centres can open. We once again would advise Sheds to read the guidance under COvid-19 on the UKMSA website (https://menssheds.org.uk/covid-19/). Advice on our website will be updated as and when new information becomes available. Two metres is still the advised social distancing requirement, which we recommend Sheds adhere to. We will update Sheds both directly and through social media as and when we have further information and guidance. ACRE and other agencies are expected to put out guidance in the next two to three days. We appreciate lockdown is and has been challenging during this time and are eagerly anticipating the return to Shed life.
