Coronavirus Statement

Our core purpose is to nurture your creativity. 
Ensuring you feel safe in a low-risk environment is fundamental to this.

We have thorough Covid-secure procedures in place that ensures we are compliant to all the latest government and local guidelines.   
We are determined to play our part in reducing the risk for everyone – and to stop the spread of COVID-19.

I am committed to  following the advice and recommendations from the Government, Public Health England and the World Health Organisation. 
I tend to err on the side of caution when making decisions based on the latest government guidelines.

Excellent Covid measures in place. Thanks for all the preparation.” Lucy D
