Almost Weekly News No. 42 – 06/07/2021
As many of you will have heard yesterday, the Prime Minister has announced the government’s intention to lift most legal restrictions on 19 July.
The Prime Minster also urged people and organisations to ‘exercise judgement’ and, for example, whilst wearing face masks will no longer be a legal requirement, it will be advisory in some settings.
At Working Together it’s unlikely we will be relaxing all Covid measures straight away. Our first priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our members, volunteers and staff.
We will continue to follow guidance from the Public Health team at Shropshire Council, Social Care Institute of Social Care (SCIE) and from Public Health England as well as continuing with our own risk assessments.
These have been robust throughout the pandemic and we will continue to err on the side of caution.
Youth Club – A Sensory Evening…
At last week’s Youth Club we were able to name the five senses and had fun doing things that stimulated them!
From making playdough and guessing things by touch- to smell tests and taste test it was fun to have a go at lots of different things.
We each made a homemade lava bottle too under Di’s careful guidance. Glitter galore!
Youth club members loved seeing the football theme throughout Working Together too, great display all!
Euro 2020: Football’s coming home…

Girls on film…
We always love to see what our members are getting up to away from Working Together.
Chloe has sent us a picture of herself playing the part of Queen Astrid in film called The Cabinet of Secret Lives.
Fab work Chloe, we can’t wait to see the finished film!
National Carers Week
Members have been thinking about National Carers Week and how we can all say thank you to those who care for us.
This is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges that carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK
We’ve created a display that highlights the work of carers, both paid and unpaid, and we have collected photos of some.
On behalf of members, staff, volunteers and trustees, we would like to say a huge thank
you to all carers – we really appreciate your commitment.
