On reflection the booking system has helped us to manage the numbers of people in the field at any one time which has allowed us to:
~ensure social distancing during the COVID-19 situation
~match the number of pickers to the amount of ripe fruit available
~solve a dangerous problem, that has been developing in recent seasons, of too many cars trying to turn in and out of the car park, causing traffic to become gridlocked on the busy road outside, with all the associated dangers to drivers and pedestrians
