Update 19/3/2020

We are, like everyone, taking steps and measures to keep safe and follow the recommended guidance regarding social distancing to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, therefore, having spoken to directors and the team, with great sadness, we are pausing all activities at the Bridge premises in King street for the time being. We will continue to keep our eyes on up to date news as it comes in and will keep in communication and act accordingly. We are continuing our work from home and are looking for ways that we can keep our community together and ensuring we are supporting each other through existing and innovative ways.

 

We are still checking messages on the Bridge answering machine: 01392 433358 and aim to return messages within 7 days.

 

The communications team are also available by email: info@bridgecollective.org.uk

 

Stay safe everyone. Please watch our website www.bridgecollective.org.uk/whats-on and Facebook www.facebook.com/bridgecollective for updates on upcoming changes.

 

Sending love

Here’s a poem by Rumi:

 

You are not alone, my dear friend

You are the world, the endless sea.

– Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī
