Dear All

 
This week’s sessions:
 
Tuesday 17 Jan: 10am – forecast is sunny but cold so wrap up warm!
 
Friday 20 January: 10am and 11amsessions are getting busy again as the schools are back so swap to Tues if you prefer it less busy.
 
If you’ve not yet booked please contact Jennifer.  Please send all booking requests to booking@wfaoxford.org and please book no later than midday the day before (and preferably earlier).  If you have any booking queries, please read see the page Coming to a Session on our website which explains how to submit a consent form (for new participants only) and how to pay online.
 
Name Change
We’ve got a long list of ideas – thanks everyone for your input.  We will now ask our leaders and volunteers to select a short list.  Our board will then make the final decision (once we have checked for conflict with other organisations, availability of domain name etc).
 

Hospitals and A&E depts still under pressure

Many hospitals, including those in our area, remain under pressure
due to very high demand from people with Covid or Flu, shortages of staff and shortage of beds.  Waiting times in A&E can be very long.  To reduce the risk of anyone needing urgent hospital treatment, we want to ensure we are taking appropriate precautions.  Although we are outside, we recommend social distancing (and using masks when this isn’t possible) and taking care to avoid accidents.  Many people currently have a variety of flu symptoms – please do not attend if you have a cough or cold or feel unwell.
 
Hand gel will be available for you to use and we will also sanitize cycles again between users.

  

Please remember we aim to open regardless of the weather (unless there‚Äôs a serious weather warning). If we have to close we will email and put a note on the website. Don’t forget to wrap up warm and bring gloves and bring waterproofs just in case! Hot drinks also available.
