Weekly update #29

Dear parents and carers I hope week 2 of this lockdown finds you all well?

We saw some great Remembrance tributes from all sections, thank you for sharing. These dreaded resource packs we’re trying to send out to members have become the bane of my life!

It’s been great to see the young people back in action and enjoy a programme – even if it has been a bit odd! As we get to the natural break that is half term, we’ll be talking with parents of those young people who are at the right age (or just a bit over now!) to move on to the next section. We’ve held off for a while to help everyone settle back in before making that […]
