I am sure you were all alarmed by the Government's announcement yesterday. I can assure you this does not affect the Youth Theatre and we carry on as outlined in the letter I sent you in August. At all times we have been following the advice given by the National Youth Agency, the government body with responsibility for voluntary groups working with young people. Following the PM's announcement they announced the following:-
** Despite the recent change to social gathering restrictions (9th September 2020), we can confirm that as an essential service, youth sector activity can continue unchanged where COVID secure to NYA guidance standards **
I will be handing out a letter on Sunday giving more detail. I hope this re-assures you and I look forward to seeing all members on Sunday. The forecast is good so we will be outside for the whole rehearsal.
