In light of the current outbreak of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, ActivLives is following strict government guidelines. Our main office at Brightspace closed on Monday 23rd March 2020, with all staff working remotely and continuing to do so until it is safe to return.
As many of you are aware, events and face-to-face meetings have had to be cancelled or postponed. All of our falls prevention sessions, inclusive sport activity, singing groups, Lunch Clubs, specialist Hubs, Health Walk, ActivSheds and our Sudbury Garden Project have had to close and our Community Gardens at Maidenhall Allotments and Chantry Park are also closed to the general public.
All our projects are on hold at the moment and will re-start as soon as it is safe to do so. We will be keeping in touch with our members and volunteers by phone to make sure they are alright and if they need any help.
I would like to thank all of our Staff, volunteers and also our Freelance Staff for their dedication and support during this difficult time. We hope that our volunteers and Freelance Staff will be able to return very soon to start-up all our fantastic activities again, when it is safe to do so.
We want people to stay connected and as active as possible while they are having to self-isolate at home, so please visit our website www.activlives.org.uk for up to date information and participate in a variety of activities that will keep your mind and body active over the coming weeks. There are exercise videos that can be done safely at home – https://activlives.org.uk/activhome/, weekly quizzes, singing videos on our Facebook page – facebook.com/activlives and we are currently working on a fun reminiscence, arts and photography project. So please have a look at the ActivLives website and Facebook page.
ActivLives will be up and running as soon as we can and we hope that everyone stays safe and well in these unprecedented times.
