CORONAVIRUS NOTICE @ 24.03.20

I am regularly monitoring the situation and am keeping myself informed about UK Government policy and travel advice as a result of the Coronavirus as soon as it is released.

One Day UK Workshops

All my one day workshops are currently postponed for the next 3 weeks in line with government guidance. I am happy to offer a credit note to be used against another one day workshop in the future. As soon as restrictions are reduced, I will look to set workshops up again and will keep you updated on any developments.

Please rest assured your money is safe and can be used for any workshop in the future before 31st Dec 2021. (I will extend this period if it should become necessary).

If you are due to make a workshop balance payment in the next couple of months, I would be grateful if you could still make that if you are able, but please don’t do so if it would cause you financial hardship. As a small business I have planned my cash flow over the coming year, so any interruption to this will be very difficult for me. I am grateful for your support through this challenging time. I am monitoring the situation closely and will update this information as needed.

As this is a dynamic situation I am also giving you some direct links to further information about the Coronavirus, where you can read more about the situation to help inform yourselves from primary sources, rather than via mainstream media – see below.

Update regarding the Giverny tour in June/July this year (2020)

At the moment it is too soon to tell whether this will be able to go ahead or not. As an interim measure therefore I propose not to ask for your balance payments which would have been due on May 4th, and I will liaise with our hotel to request that they do not charge us the balance until we can be sure that we can come.
If we are unable to go ahead on the specified date, I will endeavour to find substitute alternative dates to enable us to go and you will receive a credit of 100% to enable you to do this. This travel credit will be automatically applied to your booking and you would not need to rebook.

All tours departing from August 1st 2020 onwards.

All tours departing from August 1st 2020 are currently still planned to go ahead. This may change as the situation develops and I will keep you updated on any changes.

Practical advice and guidance can be found at the following links:

 The UK Government guidance and latest information on COVID-19 (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public)
 Foreign and Commonwealth Office Travel Advice (https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice)
 World Health Organisation. They also publish daily reports here. (https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports/)
 Further information on coronavirus, including advice on preparing for foreign travel and helping reduce the spread of the virus, is available on the Travel Health Pro (https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/news/499/novel-coronavirus-covid-19-general-advice-for-travellers) website. In particular see the ‘Advice for Travellers’

In summary, I know that this can be a worrying time. Rest assured I will continuously monitor the situation as it develops and update you as needed.

Stay well folks.
