Sadly, our two venues, the SHELL Centre and ARC look set to remain shut or the foreseeable future. There are some good signs emerging, and we are keeping a close eye on relevant Government advice, but it’s likely that at least as long as schools and other educational venues remain physically shut, so will we.
For adults, employment and digital skills are as important as ever, and we are adapting our courses to phone, email and online channels for the coming term. The Wellbeing cafe has become a successful Zoom meet-up and participants enjoy showing off their "lockdown cuisine" online. Our older residents social group is sharing jokes and friendship over What’s App. Bingo and other social get-togethers are something to look forward to.
