Dear All
 
A Special Opportunity
The Dutch manufacturer Van Raam is bringing some cycles for us to try on Tuesday 23 Aug – another Fun2Go e-side-by-side and an EasyRider e-trike with a full seat (like the Fun2Go but for one person) and possibly some others.  We know the Fun2Go is very popular and we think many of you will also love the Easyrider.  We’re keen to get as many people as possible to come and try these cycles out so this session will be free of charge and all existing participants are welcome to drop in. Please do come if you can.
 
Upcoming Sessions
We are continuing with sessions on Fridays with slots at 10, 11 and 12 and Tuesdays with slots at 10 and 11. If you’ve not yet booked a slot (for Tuesdays or Fridays), please email Jennifer@wfaoxford.org. Please remember that a consent form needs to be submitted online for any new participants at the latest by midday the day before (together with online payment – £3 per session).  Participants will not be allowed to cycle if a consent form has not been submitted. 
 

Volunteers

We’ve always room for more volunteers whether helping at sessions or with behind the scenes work.  If you can spare an hour or two whether to help get the cycles out, help participants try out different cycles or help put cycles away at the end of the session – all help is very welcome!. If you’d like more information, please contact Jennifer or Steve (07764 950685 or 07736 069632). There is also info on our website.
 

 Covid

Although rates have fallen a bit, please continue to be careful. We recommend wearing masks when in close proximity and maintaining a safe distance when chatting. Please don’t some to a session if you have any symptoms (eg runny nose, sore throat, headache, fatigue etc) or if you or someone in your household has Covid or tested positive in the last 7-10 days. Whilst for many the symptoms may be relatively mild, the large number of infections mean that the number of people being hospitalized is increasing and many of our participants are vulnerable so please take care, Please use the hand sanitiser on arrival and, if our volunteers are busy, please help sanitise the cycles between users.
 
Please spread the word about our new Tuesday sessions – both to participants and potential volunteers.
