An update from Normansfield

Here at Normansfield we are actively monitoring and following advice from the Government and Public Health England about the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

To minimise the risk of the virus spreading, open days and visits due to go ahead within the next couple of months have been postponed until later in the year. 

In the meantime, we think of all those affected and hope for everyone’s good health.
