Coronavirus - Gig Buddies and social distancing

We'll be posting any updates and information we can here.

Latest updates for all Gig Buddies on social distancing

Gig Buddies guidance on ‘Lockdown 2.0’ – 5th Nov ‘20

In light of the latest decision by the government to try and protect people from the Coronvirus pandemic we want to make it clear how we see this affects Gig Buddies.

No meeting up in doors

All pubs, cafes and restaurants will be closed and you should not meet up with your buddy indoors or in either of your homes.

Meeting up outdoors

If you feel happy to do this it would be really nice to arrange a time to go for a short walk with your buddy (keeping 2 metres apart).
This will be a nice way for people to keep connected and help towards their mental and physical fitness.
Obviously the weather may be an issue but we’d say plan something and keep in touch about making any last minute changes, and hopefully rearrange it if necessary. (Or wrap up warm!)
If you are planning to go for a walk you need to complete our form.
You can download the form here.


We will not be organising any socials or actual meetings over the next month.
We will however keep an eye on things and promise to do what we can as quickly as possible when it is safe and legal to do so.

If you are unsure about any of this please speak to your Gig Buddies co-ordinator.

Thank you and stay safe.
