Since August our committee has focused on designing a method of meeting, which complies with regulations: COVID-19 secure, and offers a risk assessment which our venues can agree to, and is agreed to by our attendees.  Currently with the wind and strings meeting in different locations, we have nonetheless started to rehearse again in person.  Lots of ventilation, hand sanitiser, and even monitoring CO2 levels!   Whilst rewarding to be back, we are very aware that not all of our members are able to participate at this time.  We are experimenting with both rehearsing and streaming the rehearsals so that others can remain engaged,

The orchestra will continue to respond to any further changes to national regulations or local restrictions.
