COVID-19 is a serious new illness that can affect your lungs and airways and can very easily be passed from one person to another. It is IMPORTANT that we ALL comply with Government healthcare guidance until we are advised otherwise.
Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people.
Outdoor exercise allowed including travel by vehicle to a location.
You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap as often as you can each day. It will break down the virus molecule on your hands.
We wanted to say a big “thank you” to the village now our project is finally getting started and we have our own place. We are just beginning the work to change the Methodist church into our very own Youth Centre. It’s going to be lots of hard work but really exciting!
Stoke is such a great place to live and grow up in, and we are very proud to be part of it. Thank you for making this happen!
