Looking at the impact of Covid on the Land of the Fanns

Please help us gather important information about the last two years and to plan for the future.

It’s time to take a breath, stand back and take stock. 2020 and 2021 have been rather a whirlwind – different and challenging for many countryside and heritage sites. Some places have received many more visitors, including sometimes new visitors with different expectations and behaviours. Other sites have closed, wholly or in part, and are reopening in a post-Covid world. What does it all mean and where does it leave us now?

So, how did Covid change the way people used sites in the Land of the Fanns? We are very keen to find out so we can build together on our individual experiences. This short survey will help us better understand what has happened and plan for the future. Please complete it and return to admin@telltale.co.uk by Monday 25 October.

We are working with Susan Cross of TellTale, who will be known to many of you from her previous work with us, to collect this information. On Tuesday 2 November (at Thames Chase Visitor Centre from 10.00am-4.00pm) Susan will lead a workshop where we can look at our collated results, compare them with emerging findings from elsewhere, discuss their implications and start to plan for the future.  Booking information can be found here.

If you run a place that people visit, this workshop will help you look at what has happened and plan a way forward.

We look forward to reading your completed survey and hopefully meeting you the workshop.
