A spokesperson said: “These are uncharted waters for us all and there are bound to be some issues initially but rest assured we will do our best to resolve them. We think it is important that we maintain as much of a sense of community and normality in these difficult times as we can – and a familiar face can make such a difference from an anonymous class found on You Tube!

Thanks again for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you next week!”
