COVID-19 UPDATE – 30th December 2020

Little Wickets Weekly Sessions On Hold Until Week Commencing 18th January 2021 at the Earliest

COVID-19 Tier 4 Update – Term Time Sessions & After School Clubs

Following the announcement on 30th December 2020 that all of our 1st & 2nd Innings’ venues are now in Tier 4 we have sadly come to the conclusion that we should temporarily suspend our weekly sessions for at least 2 weeks until the Guidance is clearer (especially from Sport England & The ECB). Under the current Public Health legislation we can legally carry on (especially with the COVID-mitigation measures we have in place) but with the well-being of all involved as our top priority and a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the return of children to school & regular indoor sport out of school/nursery settings this feels the right thing to do. We will be watching the ever-shifting guidance & legislation carefully and sincerely hope that the school & tier review due on 16th January will mean the sessions can return week commencing Monday 18th January, at the earliest.  We will of course keep everyone up to date via this website & social media and our current booked customers via email. Credits or Refunds for current will be processed accordingly. Bookings are still being taken from week commencing Monday 18th January but we recomend that payments are not made until the picture for the end of January and beyond is clearer.

We will of course keep our booked customers updated on our plans via email (credit or refunds will be given accordingly). In the meantime we would like to thank the entire Little Wickets Family for their understanding and patience.
Although the start dates have now chagned our full planned Spring 21 Term Table can be found here Little Wickets Spring 2 Timetable

Little Wickets’ Curriculm Sessions & After School Clubs have  been able to run throughout Lockdown 2 & in all Tiers (including Tier 4).  They will continue to run during Term Time.  However each school is taking an individual approach to the extra-curricular activities they are offering. If you are unsure whether your School’s Club is running or if you would like your school to offer Little Wickets’ activities (curricular or extra-curricular) please contact our Schools’ Team  Email Little Wickets’ Schools Team

Without compromising on the Fun we continue to implement a number of COVID-19 Mitigation Measures at our regular 1st & Innings sessions (when they are running)  to ensure the safety of the team, all our Families and the local commnity. Please see a summary of the measures we ask all our 1st & 2nd Innings Little Wickets’ Families to follow in our  Little Wickets’ COVID ‘New Normal’ Protocols as well as the  venue specific measures in place.  Little Wickets full COVID-19 Mitigation Risk Assessment is available on request via email from  chloe@littlewickets.com

COVID-19 Mitigation measures in place suring School Curriculm & After School Clubs follow indidividual School protocols and are available direct from each school.
