COVID-19 UPDATE – January 2021

Little Wickets Weekly Sessions On Hold Until February 2021 at the Earliest

Lockdown3 Update – Term Time Sessions, Holiday Activities  & After School Clubs

With England in the midst of Lockdown 3  all of our First & Second Innings’ weekly sessions are suspended, until such time as it is deemed safe to restart. All the indications are that this will not be until at least Mid-February when we hope to be able to run our ever popular Half Term Indoor Camp for Primary School-Aged Children and Tots’ Hotshots Toddler Mornings. and hopefully after half term we can return to our planned Spring Term timetable right up until Easter  (Little Wickets Spring 2 Timetable). For now it’s a waiting game.

In the meanime you can still book (or join the waiting list) for any of our regular  First & Second Innings sessions – there’s nothing to pay until we know for sure the sesisons are running! Many of our current sesisons are fully subscribed (we have had to make the group sizes much smaller) so please join the waiting lists – more places will become availablel as the COVID- restrictions ease and will be offered on a first-come first-served basis – you won’t want to miss out!

We’re still keeping kids active!

Once schools reopen  each school will take an individual approach to the extra-curricular activities they offer and we look forward to ‘face to face’ after school clubs just as soon possible.  If you would like your school to offer Little Wickets’ activities (curricular or extra-curricular) once it is safe to do so please contact our Schools’ Team  Email Little Wickets’ Schools Team
