COVID Lock Down

We are now in Lock Down again.  We have a booklet based on the Government Guidelines and approved by our Welfare Committee and Collegian Trustees.

As a collection of independent households around public areas, we are following the guidelines for visiting, bubbles and behaviour in public spaces.  Those who are particularly vulnerable are taking additional precautions.

Collegians want to be treated as intelligent, compassionate adults and that is what we do!

We are still hoping to be able to celebrate Christmas in a creative and lively way and Collegians are already coming up with ideas.  The Christmas tree is still a hope if we can source one big enough to make an impact and there are all sorts of ideas for lunch.

Inspired by one Collegian, we have started a face covering competition: for the most stunning and innovative design.

We are so grateful for the blessings of this place and mindful that the experience of lock down for others is far, far worse than ours!

If you have any concerns please call the Office 020 8460 4712 or Chaplain Jane 07947 778441.

We continue to support each other and are in good spirits! Please pray for our safety and well-being as we pray for yours.
