Almost Weekly News No. 15 – 21/07/2020
**WE’VE RE-OPENED OUR DOORS*
We are super, super pleased to have welcomed some of our members back to Rockspring this week.
Initially, we are able to only offer shorter sessions to fewer people each day but we hope to able to increase this over coming weeks as we all get used to the new ways of working and keeping up our social distancing.
We’re pleased that we’ve been able to offer each member at least one session a week if they’re ready and able to return to Rockspring. Not everyone is able to return just yet for any number of reasons, but we will do our best to keep spaces open for everyone when they are ready to join us at Rockspring again.
It’s been a lot of hard work to make sure that Working Together can operate in a Covid Safe way – big thanks to James, Jan and Nigel.
We were thrilled to welcome Tim and Nicola when they came to see us to try out our new way of working. Tim planted some herbs to make a new herb garden and Nicola, Chair of Trustees, was pleased to sign our official Covid Safe sign – which we’ve put proudly on the noticeboard.
Online bingo night
Last week Youth and Diversity held an online bingo night. It was eyes down for a full house and we all had a fab night playing bingo.
Dan breezed it with a couple of wins and Alex cleared a full house!
Everyone agreed it was great fun!
Making WT at Rockspring Covid Safe…
Staff were working rea y hard ast week to prepare the space ready for the arrival of our members this week.
Rooms have been cleaned and cleared of non essential items – to reduce the amount of touchpoints and the risk of catching Covid from contaminated surfaces.
Signage and hand sanitising units are in place and lots and lots of paperwork has been completed to ensure we are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe.
If you’re coming to Rockspring remember that Sandpits Road will be closed between the junctions of Julian Road and Henley Road for the next six months for Severn Trent Water to upgrade the sewers.
Thanks to the Telford business & office supplies company Chrisbeon who have donated
some of their mask extenders – which can be used to make wearing a mask a little more comfortable.
If any Members would like to try one, let us know and we will send some to you.
