Statement from Jennie and Zoë regarding our current plans for the Stratford Retreat in June and the COVID-19 pandemic.
As things stand, we have no plans to cancel the retreat and we would only do so on government advice. We are a relatively small group of fewer than fifty people and therefore less likely to be affected by mandatory limits on public gatherings.
We will be monitoring all updates from central government and Public Health England/Wales and will keep you informed about any changes that would affect the retreat.
Clearly the hotel management will also play a role in determining if we are able to continue and we will be liaising with them to make sure that we are aware of their current policies.
Hopefully you will all have purchased travel insurance (as recommended in the terms and conditions!). Please check to see whether this would cover you for any expenses which you have already incurred.
We hope that you have enough stash to get you through any periods of self-isolation, and that you stay healthy! Don’t forget to wash your hands (and needles!).
