Despite all the problems created by the Covid pandemic, staff and volunteers at The Nicky are working hard in preparation, hopefully, for a May reopening of the club facilities.
The Nicky’s Chief Executive, Michelle Wiseman said: “Although we’ve maintained contact with our members throughout the Covid Pandemic we’ve missed the face to face contact, and I know they have too. I’m delighted that, subject to advice from the appropriate authorities, we are planning for re-opening in May. We have completely refurbished and redecorated our premises, including the lounge, dining room and toilet facilities to make sure everything is Covid compliant and that our members will be able to enjoy themselves and participate in all our activities in a perfectly comfortable and safe environment.”
Throughout the pandemic, Michelle and her team, staff and volunteers, have kept in touch with the members and are routinely checking to ensure that they are all getting their vaccinations. “We are now preparing to visit all our members in their own homes as soon as it is safe to do so,” she said. “We have kept in touch over the past twelve months by telephone and online, providing many members with laptops and tablets, along with the required training to use them. The Centre is now taking shape and looks brighter and fresher and we hope to attract many new members too. We have also been distributing over 1,500 Meals on Wheels a month.
“We were determined to keep going and we’re nearly there thanks to the support of our dedicated team.”
