After careful planning and providing various risk assessments to local authorities, we were given permission to open on Monday 17th August. A month later, although still restricted to a maximum of 8 Clients per day, I can safely say our Clients are so glad to be back. Social distancing is a key factor
with our first priority being to keep everyone safe. A few photos below show some of our happy Clients along with our happy staff.
Our bathing facility is fully operational.
Unfortunately we cannot hold our monthly coffee mornings and our store rooms are full of goods you have so kindly donated. WE ARE UNABLE TO TAKE ANY MORE GOODS.
During Lockdown we were closed, except for the continuation of our Meals on Wheels daily service. The service was, and still is in great demand. Unfortunately some staff members who switched to Meals on Wheels during Lockdown must return to their normal duties and we so are looking for Volunteers to help out. If you think you might be able to help then please contact the office or click on the link below to find out more.
Due to the restrictions placed on us by Covid-19, the AGM for Vine Community Trust was held online by the Trustees on July 13th 2020.
I am sorry that we were unable to extend our normal invitation to you. A one page summary of our year end accounts as at March 31st, and a copy of the Chairman’s report. can be seen below in the next section.
Regarding the Officers for next year, Eddy Short has now stepped down as Vice Chairman, as his period of tenure has elapsed; his successor as Vice Chairman is Mrs Pamela Goodman. The other officers are the same as last year and the independent examiners, Baldwins, (they were called Smith, Hodge & Baxter,) also remain the same.
Next year we will hopefully be able to invite you to our AGM that will be held, as in previous years, at Marlow House.
DUE TO THE CORONAVIRIUS CRISIS, MARLOW HOUSE IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
We will continue with our Meals on Wheels service.
Please stay safe and follow the guidelines from the Government..
