As you are probably aware the Team has been working hard preparing to restart Music Makers safely and practically after the long break. I am therefore delighted to tell you that the doors will be open again both Wednesday and Friday of the first week of November! The Wednesday group will meet 10.00–11.30 a.m. from 3rd November and the Friday group will meet 10.00–11.30 a.m. from 5th November.
We are, of course, all aware that Covid rates remain high throughout the country and for this reason we will be limiting numbers on both days and carefully monitoring the situation. You will notice some practical changes in how we run our sessions, but we pray you feel warmly welcomed back (or for the first time) and that you and your little ones enjoy playing, singing, and listening to stories together with us.
To ensure access for our current contact families, can we encourage you to only attend with one adult per family? And although we love that you want to share the group with other friends, please can you refrain from doing so as we re-establish the group. Can we also ask that where possible you don’t bring buggies as the storage space for them is much reduced? There is plenty of parking nearby at the former Aldi site.
It probably goes without saying, but for the safety of all please don’t join us if you or your child are displaying any symptoms or are at all ‘under the weather’. We will be encouraging all team members to complete a lateral flow test before attending each week and would ask you to do, too. Masks will be discretionary, but we must be aware that everyone feels differently about the virus and be respectful of others’ needs.
It would help us to know which day you plan to join us, so please can you send a message on the WhatsApp group with both carer and child’s name plus ‘Wednesday’ or ‘Friday’.
Please continue to monitor the WhatsApp group and the Music Makers page on the church website for future updates.
We hope this letter will reassure those of you more concerned by the virus, but we are so looking forward to seeing you with your children back in the building once again.
Put & Ruthie, on behalf of the Music Makers team.
