~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope everyone is well and practising their chords and strumming furiously !! No doubt like me you are missing our sessions and would love to be back together again........Unfortunately....
due to the current and ongoing coronavirus situation the ukulele group is still suspended. Government Guidelines and the obvious difficulties of singing and social distancing with a group of our size is impossible and the use of masks further complicates the situation. Marie has been investigating the possibilities of finding a larger venue and the Westwood Club has agreed that their much larger room would be available when we feel it is safe to resume.
I will monitor the situation, follow Government advice and keep people informed via the website.#
Take Care and stay safe

May 2021
Many groups are now meeting again after recent changes in Government Guidelines and I know people are keen to get together ..play our ukuleles and sing together. Current DCMS guidance however only allows a maximum of 6 people to sing and rehearse inside….unlike non-singing groups which can meet in multiples of 6. At this time this makes our group unable to meet inside.
When this guidance changes I will organise a zoom meeting when everyone can give their views and we can organise our risk assessments etc.

Now that Government Guidance has changed and everyone is keen to meet again we have arranged to start our meetings on Monday 13th September at 2:00 pm. However a change of venue is necessary as the Emmaus Room is too small for a group of our size. We have arranged to meet in the Concert Room of the Westwood Club NE387LJ …At this meeting we can sing and play and more importantly decide as a group where we should meet long term as we have had suggestions from various members.
We will provide hand sanitiser and everyone should follow what has now become “normal” behaviour of looking after ourselves and others..
Looking forward to seeing everyone….bring playlist 1 and keep strumming!,
Take Care
