Return to rehearsals – 3 August 2021

We are finally getting back to rehearsals – what a long time it’s been!  On the 3rd August it will have been 73 weeks since we last sang together!!!

We are continuing with our plan to reduce numbers at rehearsal with three one hour sessions each Tuesday evening. The first is on the 3rd August.

 Your section head will let you know what session you should attend.

Please note: 

  • You cannot swap groups or turn up for another session if you are unable to attend your allotted time.
  • It is very important that you do not attend if you are unwell or think you may have any COVID symptoms.
  • A register will be taken which we will use for ‘track and trace’.
  • There will be a one way system for entry and exit.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available.
  • We will still maintain social distancing.  Please respect this if you have to wait to get seated.
  • The church will be ventilated.
  • Please bring your own refreshments as the kitchen will not be in use.
  • Only the disabled toilet will be in use.
  • Please keep all your belongings with you, coats, bags etc.
  • Please don’t share music.
  • Please don’t mingle coming into or out of the church.
  • We are not collecting subs yet so please don’t pay us, not yet.

Whilst we can’t say you must wear a mask, we recommend that you do. We have purchased for you facemask spacers –  they are inserted between your face and mask and stop your mask from sticking to your face.  You will be given the spacers to you when you arrive. 

We also recommend that you take lateral flow tests which are freely available.

When your session ends, please leave promptly as we will need to clean the church in readiness for the next group.

We’ll continue with this arrangement until we and you are happy to move on.
