Wednesday 18th March 17:30
Following on from our statement yesterday, we have made the decision to close group classes at the Studios from the end of business on Saturday 21st March with a view to reopening after the Easter break on Monday 20th April.
This date may change, and we will be continuing to follow advice as we receive it.
Until this point, classes will continue for those who wish to attend.
We have been overwhelmed by the number of parents who have already contacted us to say that should the Studios close due to the virus, they will definitely be returning and will continue to pay their class fees in the meantime. As I am sure you will be aware, the financial effects on small businesses at this time are huge, as rent and bills still need to be paid during any period of closure. If you are able to continue to pay your fees during closure, we would like to thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts. Without your support, the Studios will not recover, and we will be forced to close permanently.
If you are in a similar situation and are also met with financial difficulties due to the virus, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org will make the necessary adjustments to your direct debit during this time.
We still do not know what will happen with regards to upcoming performances, but we will let you know as soon as possible when we have any definite news.
Please look after your friends and family at this time, and we will see you all again very soon.
With all best wishes,
Chesterfield Studios Ltd
