Regulations Update

 

At Cirencester Market & Voyce Pullin On Farm sales for the safety of our staff and customers we have been as stringent as possible regarding the wearing of masks and social distancing together with the ‘drop and go' policy.

 

On Monday 19th July 2021 some restrictions have been lifted and it has been left to individuals as to how they act. Coronavirus cases are still at high levels and we ask you to act responsibly, keep your distance, sanitise your hands, wear a mask if you feel it is required. Common sense is required at all our sales.

 

Market Vendors:

You are now allowed back into the market to watch your stock sold, we ask that you still reduce your time in market and please try to restrict the number of attendees from one household.

 

The calf sale has returned to the calf ring and we ask vendors in both rings to stand back to allow social distancing between purchasers.

 

Market Buyers:

The screens around the sale ring will remain in place and the office will remain being served at the windows.  Again, please try to restrict the number of people attending the market to allow Social Distancing between each buyer.

 

We still recommend that Onlookers & Children do not attend or social visits.
