Snow & Ice!!

Posted by on February 9, 2021 at 4:00 AM Comments comments (58)

Good Morning Everyone, I hope you are all keeping warm and well.  It's very Icy out there so please stay in and keep safe.  We won't be out with our STEP car today as the roads are too icy and we don't want people venturing out.  Janice will be calling you today if it is your turn and hopefully we will be back in the office tomorrow.  Janice and I had our vaccination last week so hopefully it means we can all get back together soon, well done to everyone who has had their vaccination.  Anyone over 70 who hasn't had a vaccination can now make an appointment to get one, if that's you please book an appointment on or phone 119 free of charge.  The sooner we are all vaccinated the closer we will be to getting back to some fun and don't we need it!! 

Take Care Everyone

Well, LOCKDOWN & SNOW aren't we blessed!!  Stay home and keep warm everyone.  Staff are working from home today, you will be contacted by phone if you are on todays list.  Hopefully the snow will be gone by Tuesday so that we can be out and about our area bringing food to you.  Most of you will know by now that STEP is relocating to Shannon House which is not far from where we are now, more details will follow when we have news of a date of moving.  Remember we are not closing, just moving.  Hopefully we can get up and running at some point this year.

I know 2020 was a tough year for us all and 2021 hasn't got off to the best start, but lets have faith, keep positive and together we'll get through it.

Well done to all our members who have had the Covid Vaccination already and some have had the 2nd one!

Hi Everyone, 

TIER 3 begins today in Leeds, so unfortunately this means that STEP won't be open!  I hope you are all ok, and managing to muster up some festive spirit!!  I know it's difficult.  What great news today though that a Vaccine has been approved, let's hope this means we are on the way to our normal way of life.  I can't wait to get back to normal and the members that I have spoken to feel exactly the same.  We will continue to keep contact with our members, we are here if you need any help/advice about anything so feel free to give us a call.  We are busy preparing next years fun so keep an ear out for what is happening.

Take Care Everyone

Well, here we go again, Lockdown No 2!  Hopefully it will only be for 4 weeks this time, let's keep our fingers crossed!  Staff are still as always in the building so feel free to call us if you need help with anything.  Please take care of yourselves, follow the rules, keep your distance, wash your hands and wear a mask when you go out.  We do look forward to seeing you all back at the centre very soon :):D

As the end of Volunteer Week draws to a close, I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to all the STEP volunteers who commit their time to our work every week.  Between them they put in over 35hrs a week which is fabulous. We couldn't do all of the things we do without them, they are AMAZING :)

Hi All,

What does this week bring at STEP?  Our Monday 'Dance On' yesterday had 12 attendees, the most so far, it is a mixture of seated gentle exercise with a bit of Dance thrown in, why don't you give it a go next week?  Our Tuesday Roast lunch club is going great, get your name down for next week, Wednesday sees us with a Racing Afternoon which is usually very good fun, place your bets!!!  Please give us a call if you need any further information about our work, it will be lovely to hear from you.
