On behalf of the Trustees of The Basement Door:


We would like to clarify that all face-to-face activities of The Basement Door are postponed until further notice.  This is primarily due to the Government guidelines as to social isolation, in order to protect vulnerable members of society.


We hope that remote / virtual activities can be continued, as suggested by Kev.  We look forward to resuming all TBD’s activities at the first opportunity, once the current crisis is over.


Wishing all our volunteers and supporters the best of health.  Stay safe!


The TBD Trustees.
