Coronavirus (COVID-19) Timperley Food Studio Company policy

In this Coronavirus (COVID-19) company policy, you’ll find all the essential guidelines customers should follow during the coronavirus outbreak. This coronavirus (COVID-19) company policy is susceptible to changes with the introduction of additional governmental guidelines. If so, we will update as soon as possible.


We wish to inform you all about the safety measures that we have in place, and to understand more about the experience of being on a class during this time. We have been busy working out what will be our new normal, incorporating all the necessary safety practices.

If you are symptomatic – high temp, persistent cough, loss of taste, please do not attend your class or visit the studio. Contact us as soon as possible, to postpone or cancel your class. You may receive a full refund.

In the event of a lockdown due to a second wave – We will postpone the class or you may cancel and receive a full refund.

We are required by law to hold your personal details (taken at booking) for 21 days. This is to assist the governments Test and Trace initiative. To keep everyone safe after a class and in the event of anyone having symptoms after our classes, please do inform us if you do, so we can track and trace everyone involved.  

Please aim to bring with you as little as possible. You don’t need to bring an apron.

Ahead of your arrival we will have completed a thorough clean and all surfaces will have been sanitised. 


Please stay seated unless asked to wash your hands. Food hygiene is an important part of our food classes, so we will be doing lots of this throughout.

Please ensure you remain in your own household or support bubbles at all times.

We will induct you at the start of our classes, to follow social distancing guidelines and have regular hand-washing breaks.

PLEASE WEAR A FACE COVERING in class, WHERE POSSIBLE or legally bound to.

Our staff will be wearing face coverings during class time, if you require us to.

We will be using different methods of teaching; managing spaces and timings in the studio to allow every student their space.

We are running classes with smaller numbers of students to enable safer distancing.


“2m, or 1m with risk mitigation where 2m is not viable, is acceptable”

Our seating arrangements will be set out within these guidelines. Please comply to keep everyone safe. Remember not all people are comfortable with you stood 1m away when 2m is possible.


Our cleaning scheduled is increased and high contact surfaces such as door handles and toilet will be regularly cleaned, to include a full deep clean of common areas between occupations by each class group. Good air circulation/ventilation is encouraged, therefore doors and windows may be propped open. Wash your hands after using the toilet, before eating, and if you cough/sneeze into your hands (follow the 20 second hand washing rules).

Cough/sneeze into your sleeve, preferably into your elbow. If you use a tissue, discard it properly and clean/sanitize your hands immediately. Avoid touching your face, particularly eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands to prevent from getting infected.

If you find yourself coughing/sneezing on a regular basis, avoid close physical contact with others and take extra precautionary measures.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during these changing times.

Apart from that, let’s have fun and get back to some normality.

Food always brings a smile to our faces !
