Update: 19th October 2020
With Chesterfield now being at Tier 2 COVID alert, as a small volunteer-run project we have taken the difficult decision that we must now stop running the Consultant Appointments as well as the Library Sessions. We are not set up to provide you with the level of protection that we feel we have a duty to offer. All three of us consultants have ‘real’ jobs, young children and older relatives. If we continue to work indoors in our homes or yours, we place our families at risk as well as your families. As the weather worsens it is no longer feasible for us to work outdoors either.
Current loans: we will keep in touch, you can continue to loan, doorstep-swap or return.
Existing members: Message us if you know what you want to borrow and don’t need a demo we can arrange for you to collect from HQ.
Everybody Else: We are still available on FB messages or email@example.com, but we would like to signpost you to Sheffield Sling Surgery for local assistance and loans or to It’s A Sling Thing for online assistance and loans. Both are real businesses with the resources to offer you what we don’t feel we can, that is a safe service.
We can’t wait to be open again in some capacity, but for now we feel it is the responsible position to cease in-person services.
