As you are probably now aware, the Prime Minister has enforced isolation of the UK population for at least the next 3 weeks and the possibility of continuing beyond that. This does pose a risk to Tokonatsu running however at this time, the dates are far enough out that we might not be affected. That said, the situation is changing day by day and this could change at any point.
We have asked our volunteers and staff of Tokonatsu to work on plans for alternatives, in case something needs to happen. We are very busy behind the scenes ensuring that both Tokonatsu and any changes can be enacted with the minimum of disruption. However, we are not expecting Tokonatsu to be cancelled at this time.
Whilst we'd like to assure you that this is set in stone, we cannot and plans might change. We are watching, we are listening, and we are taking action based on Government advice and requirements. The safety of everyone is our utmost priority, and we will NOT take any actions that may pose a risk to anyone that wants to attend Tokonatsu. If there is a risk, then we will do what we can to make sure everyone stays safe.
We do appreciate that you all have a lot to think about in your own lives at the moment, and would encourage you to ensure you prioritise looking after yourself, your family, your loved ones and your friends above Tokonatsu.
Thank you for all of your support through this, and all we ask of you is to stay safe. If you have any questions, queries, concerns, please let us know. We are here to listen and to help where we can.
Things will be difficult in the coming weeks, and it may be tough on all of us, but we will get through this! Remember, that we are all here to help each other, and that you are not alone throughout this.
Thank you for listening, and thank you for understanding.
