Kirrip Newsletter - 20th January 2021
Happy New Year!

We hope you had a lovely festive period and were able to spend time with your loved ones.

Here at Kirrip House we have been planning away for a great 2021! You may have seen on our Facebook page that many of our programs are resuming in just a couple of weeks time. They will all be held face-to-face, so we look forward to seeing you all again. Please scroll through this newsletter to see dates and times of our programs.

We have a COVIDSafe Plan in place so we can reopen safely. This does mean that our groups are limited in the number of participants that can attend, so please let us know if you would like to reserve a place. 

Take a read of what's happening below. See you all soon!
