Essential travel does not include driving to beauty spots for your daily walk or exercise. In addition, we must stress that essential travel, the Department for Health and Social Care says, “does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays.”
Police now have more stringent measures in place and will enforce fines if necessary.
For this reason, we ask you to ignore any content on our website that encourages you to get out and about at this time while measures are in place.
For now, we must protect South Somerset’s NHS and essential services by asking visitors to stay at home.
We look forward to welcoming you later in the year.
