DPS depot - limited reopening

The DPS is pleased to announce that the society's depot at Barrow Hill has reopened for a limited amount of volunteer working on Saturdays as part of a phased return - at long last, we can begin to progress the return of D9009 and the completion of D9015.


The safety of our volunteers is paramount, and, in line with government advice, new procedures and guidelines have been put in place, including new hygiene measures and policies to aid social distancing. To comply with COVID-19 restrictions, the number of volunteers allowed in the depot is restricted to 12 people, and all volunteers are required to complete an induction review - only those who are booked in may attend.


Please note that the DPS depot, and the Barrow Hill site, remains closed to casual visitors, including DPS members who are not working. We are sure that you will all appreciate that this is necessary given the current situation.
