CORONAVIRUS (Covid-19) - YORK Cookery School updated statement 10.03.2021
Hello, once again, to all our wonderful customers & friends. We hope that you are all well and keeping safe.
The latest announcement made by Boris Johnson on Monday, February 22nd, revealing the ‘Road Map’ to come out of the current lockdown, has allowed us to review our position with regard to reopening.
Based on the current time plan, we will be able to reopen from May 17th and our first class, back in the School, will be on Saturday, May 22nd.
We will, along with the rest of the population, await guidance on any changes to these dates and we’ll continue to keep our customers updated as the situation progresses.
When we reopen, we will, once again, run our classes by going above and beyond the necessary guidance to ensure our premises and our processes are fully compliant and in line with the relevant procedures to ensure we are Covid-secure.
The safety and wellbeing of our staff and our customers remains the most important thing to us and, as such, we have responded to all of the advice in what, we believe, is the most sensible and prudent way.
Until June 21st, our classes will be run in the same way that we ran them when we reopened during the pandemic in 2020. This means limiting the numbers of attendees on each class to between 4 and 6 (depending upon whether people from the same household are attending the same class), so that we can continue to deliver our classes whilst maintaining appropriate social distancing.
“The class on Saturday was exceptional. You had considered everything very thoroughly and went above and beyond to make us feel safe. I appreciated the lengths you went to to be personable and friendly so the atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed even though we were separated.” Helen G., Thai Street Food class, July 2020
We are confident that our customers can learn in a very safe environment whilst enjoying themselves We hope you will be supportive of our efforts in this regard.
Our 2021 class calendar is available to book and Cookery School vouchers are available to buy. Our vouchers now last for 12 months to allow plenty of time to get customers on to courses where availability may be limited.
Please remember that we are a small business and we want to continue to support one another. Your continued support and custom are greatly appreciated.
In the meantime, take care of yourselves and thank you so much for bearing with us.
Kate, Fraser & the team at YORK Cookery School.
