April newsletter

 

 

Hello Everyone.

 

We hope that you all had a good easter and are enjoying the slow relaxation of lockdown rules.

 

We had hoped that this Newsletter would be giving you news of the restart of our face to face activities but as you all know and we are sure understand this is not yet possible due to Covid 19 still being very real and effecting all our daily lives.

 

At the time of writing this newsletter it is 12 months since all our lives were turned upside down with the uncertainty of Coronavirus. Therefore we thought it was time to update you on the position of Daytrippers (Bolton) and what we are doing at the moment.

 

We are still very much here and constantly trying to adapt to the different rules as they happen. At present we have a twice weekly dance session via the Zoom app each Monday at 7pm and each Thursday at 6.45pm both classes last 45 minutes.

 

We also have a Zoom drink and chat eve on Tuesdays at 7.30pm. So get the kids settled grab a beverage of your choice and join us for a 45 minutes of chat.

 

Please also remember that we are available to support all of our families by collecting shopping and prescriptions for those having to isolate or are struggling to get these for other reasons.

 

We also still have our hardship fund for those of our families who find themselves struggling to buy essentials.

 

Our Facebook, Messanger and Whatsapp groups are a place where our families can support each other by sharing with others the good, the bad, the fun, and the laughter, whatever you want or need to share or off load understanding will be there. All we ask is that you respect each other’s views. If you are not part of these groups and would like to be added please contact us to let us know.

 

We also have both our phone lines available if you just need a listening ear. Just call

07742 693 157 & 07941 747 920.

 

As a group we are desperate to get Daytrippers (bolton) back up and running, doing what we do best, our Outings and Activities, Party and Play, Dance, No Tech Night and Swimming sessions etc. but until we can do all these things in the very safest way possible we feel that it is in everyone’s best interest if we just sit tight and continue with the activities above for the time being.

 

That said please rest assured although it may be some time before our face to face Outings and Activities return they will return.

 

In the mean time we do have something to look forward to. It will be Daytrippers 18th Birthday on the 1st May 2021 and we are in the process of making some plans on how to celebrate it remotely:-

• An 18th birthday challenge sponsored event.

• Cake decoration design competition. The winners design will be on our celebration cake when we can finally get together.

• Live Zoom party.

 

Remember we are still here and new families are always welcome to join us.

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions about things we could be providing at the moment please let us know either on our social media pages, by phone or at [email protected]

 

Keep an eye on our social media for updates as they happen.
