COVID-19 UPDATE – March 2021

Little Wickets’ Fun & Games to restart in line with the Government’s “Roadmap”

Summer 2021 Term – March 21 Update

Following the Government’s  “Roadmap to Cautiously Ease Lockdown Restrictions”  announcement  on 22nd February 2021, we are optimistically planning for all of our activities to restart very soon,  in line with the 4 Step Plan laid out.  The Government’s step by step approach & the dates they have given are  subject to several factors being met. As I know the whole country is, we are watching the news and guidance with our fingers crossed and hoping that none of the landmark dates slip.

We already have a lot of bookings for the Easter Camps & Summer Term and anticipate high demand with the end of the lockdown in sight, so please don’t delay booking your children’s place(s). We can’t wait to see the kids running around having fun together with joyful smiles on their faces once again.   

You can book your children’s place(s) with confidence in the full knowledge that should the dates have to change, or an activity can’t run we have a  COVID 100% Refund Guarantee in place. 

Here’s the plan for now ….

Our First & Second Innings’ weekly sessions will be restarting for the Summer Term on Saturday 17th April 2021.

Our Summer 2021 Term Bookings are now live Info & Bookings

Everyone who was booked onto the Cancelled Spring Term has been sent an email to cnfirm their place for the Summer Term.
