As a result of the Covid19 pandemic, almost all of Hetton New Dawn's activities have been closed since week beginning 23rd March, with one exception. The work on the allotment has continued so that we will be in a position to help resource not only the food bank, which is ongoing, when crops are ready, but also our Welcome Cafes when we are able to reopen. So the work has gone on and you can see what we've been doing on our Allotment 2020 page.
At the time of writing this blog there is no decision as to when group activities will be able to start - but we are keeping in touch with members, especially the most vulnerable, offering support and help where necessary. We are also putting in place plans for smaller group activities during the summer to encourage members to get involved in social activities again - of course, subject to Government guidelines.
