We are currently compiling a programme of activity for you to participate in, and details will soon be available. Due to the restrictions around the number of people that can meet in groups and the locations we're able to use, we will be using digital platforms such as Zoom and YouTube to host tutorials and workshops. These will take place alongside activities we are able to run outdoors and in a limited range of indoor spaces.
We are among a lot of organisations and services that have been forced to turn to digital forms of engagement but will work hard to ensure the programme we offer is still accessible to our members. We continue to review local guidelines and develop a programme that safely utilizes appropriate venues and resources for the benefit of all our members.
If you need some support with using digital technology, a useful list of information, tool kits and guides has been compiled by Connected Nottinghamshire to help you stay connected and safe whilst online. All of the guides and toolkits can be found here
