Tuesday 11am – 1pm
BAPS and GLOBES are combining into a Cheltenham group in a very large new venue, St Margaret’s Hall, 20 Coniston Road, Hatherley, Cheltenham, GL51 3NU
Please bring your own drinks and we will provide the cake!
Breastfeeding Counsellor Elizabeth and the team of Peer Supporters look forward to welcoming you
There is a large free car park next to the Hall. If it’s possible to leave your pushchair in the car, we’d be grateful
Buses go from town to Hatherley Post Office then it’s a 5 minute walk. The hall is right at the end of Coniston Road which is off Windermere Road
Please note that it is a venue requirement that a face covering is worn at all times whilst in the hall (unless exempt). GBSN asks that you wear a mask whilst moving around. Once in your socially distanced space and settled with your baby, you may like to swop to a vizor
MESSAGE FROM THE GBSN TRUSTEES
The outdoor support groups proved popular and as the weather turns autumnal, we will continue to take precautions to keep you safe at our group.
Regulations mean we cannot have more than fifteen people at a group who are socially distancing – this includes children and babies. However our wonderful Breastfeeding Counsellors are exempt from the head count.
It may be that on arrival to group, if there are too many people you will be asked to wait until someone has left. If you are unable to wait, we will help you to sign up to a virtual one to one with one of our Breastfeeding Counsellors for the next day or maybe even the same day.
We will be collecting information on arrival for Track and Trace via our electronic sign in forms.
Please do not attend group if you are unwell, even with cold symptoms. If you have symptoms of coronavirus you will need to isolate for ten days and your household contacts for fourteen days, unless your test is negative. Please also do not attend if you are quarantining after returning from abroad.
If you would like help with positioning and attachment (“latching”) please consider booking a virtual one to one or bear in mind that we’ll be socially distancing in the group
We will be ensuring rooms are thoroughly cleaned and providing alcohol gel to sanitise hands. Please wear a mask on arrival until you are settled in your space. We ask that families continue to keep 2m spacing from each other as we have done in our outdoor groups.
Please come with your own drinks, however in true GBSN style we will provide the cakes. Please bring whatever you need for yourself and your family eg changing mat, snacks/lunch.
