Annual Review 2020

2020 has been a year that has required a lot from us all: energy, positivity, commitment and tenacity.  It has also been a year when we have had to change and adapt the ways in which we work.  Living through a pandemic has truly shown solidarity, strength and resilience of our community.

This annual review gives an overview of some of what we have achieved in the last 12 months.  With enormous thanks to everyone involved.

Tier 2

Under Tier 2 guidelines we are able to run many of our organised activities for children, with Adrenalin Dance, Ballet North, Showkids, Perform and ARTBASH sessions returning to the building.  Parents need to drop off at the door and we must all be vigilant with hand sanitising and social distancing. 

Messy Play on Thursday will happen in the building this week and rather than cooking online we’ll be offering tea and cake at our community cafe.  Yoga and 50+ dance will be on zoom for this week – and will return next week with a in person and zoom offering at the same time!

Our Kitchen Club family support groups are on a Monday and Friday and Wednesday Playgroup is back next week.  Mask wearing, hand sanitising and social distancing is a must!

Urban Table on Sunday continues as a take away service and our drop in support project is running remotely with our amazing staff and volunteers working harder than ever. 

Our nursery continues to be open, again with parents dropping off at the door.

We will continue to respond to the pandemic guidance as it evolves and do all that we can to support our local community throughout.
