Coronavirus Update, 24/07/20

Now that everyone is easing themselves out of lockdown, and venues are beginning to open up, we will be cautiously running a few activities over the summer holidays for Scarf families.

Please keep an eye out for members’ emails about forthcoming activities and book directly with our Programme Coordinator. For more details click on the Holiday Activities tab. 

We are really looking forward to seeing some of you over the summer holidays after what seems like a long break!
