One of our company members will arrive with the minimum of equipment (which will be disinfected on arrival and leaving the premises. Gloves to be worn.)
The workshop will take place in the school hall, where seats and benches will be spaced accordingly, the activity the children will be involved with, will be one that can be done on their own.
