Since lockdown began in March, we have been constantly in touch with our two schools in Zambia. Initially we were extremely worried about what would happen if the virus got a hold there. There are only a few hospitals in the main towns and even these are poorly equipped to cope with this virus. However, so far, they appear to be only mildly affected. Read June's newsletter below to find out what has happened in the last few months.
A message from Tortworth Estate: "Please adhere to the signs and online notices stating that Tortworth Lake is CLOSED for the foreseeable future at all times. We have taken this move to prevent people coming into too close a contact directly and by using gates etc. There is no public right of way around there anyway, including in the woods above the lake, and we feel it is a shame we have to request this, as we have made enough signs up, and it is known that is only open the first Sunday of the month Feb-Oct, yet a bit like with National Parks and other outdoor spaces people feel they can just use it for their leisure. Which with the lake is trespassing anyway, when not on the given Sundays.
We are sorry to have to be so firm but we are trying to promote the Government’s advice, and help stop the spread of the virus."
