COVID VACCINE INFORMATION
Here's a selection of info I've been given from choir members to help with getting your vaccine from transportation to tips. If you have any other info or amendments you think might be helpful, just drop me a message. Paul xx
Several Choir members have suggested this: "make sure you and your family all dig out your NHS number and have a copy of it it immediately to hand for when you or they are called for the COVID jab. From my colleagues on the front line this is far and away the biggest bottle neck when it comes to administering the vaccine to as many people as quickly as possible. You can find your NHS number on any NHS correspondence or through the app
Avoid Scams: In the UK coronavirus vaccinations will only be available via the NHS. You can be contacted by the NHS, your employer, a local GP surgery or pharmacy to receive your vaccination. Vaccinations are free of charge and you will not be asked for a payment.
The NHS will never:
Ask for your bank account or card details
Ask for your PIN or banking passwords
Arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine
Ask for documentation to prove your identity, such as a passport or utility bills.

Taxi To Vaccine
Lots of choir members have recommended Mark from Berkhamsted who runs Berko Black Cab: 07961 594435. He has a set rate for Hemel vaccine bookings (below) but has also already taken Eve to Edgware too. He says he can offer discounts or even some free journeys to people in need.

If you're wanting to focus on rehearsing any songs in particular, the main songs we want sounding great are those during the ceremony itself, highlighted in yellow below. As the guests enter we're having a nice informal sing too. Don't worry if you're unfamiliar with any of these. It'll just be a lovely informal sing whilst people are taking their seats!
SONGS AS GUESTS ENTER
Listed Alphabetically: Order will be called as we go along. We probably won't sing all of these.
Somewhere Only We Know
SONGS DURING CEREMONY
Listed in order of service
We're now back singing together in person. As we gradually return to normal with the lifting of legal restrictions, numbers at indoor sessions will continue to be capped so we can maintain social distancing.
There is now no need to RSVP each week, unless you are new or returning to choir for the first time this year.
MONDAYS & TUESDAYS
Ashley Green Village Hall
Arrivals welcome up to 15 minutes before
On clear days this session will take place outdoors. On rainy days we'll move inside. If we get to a point where more than 40 people are wanting to come to indoor sessions then we'll split into two sessions on that evening. You'll be notified well in advance.
Bourne End Village Hall
Arrivals welcome up to 15 minutes before
This is an indoor session with doors and windows open and chairs spaced out. If we go over 35 people this will be split into two sessions to help us maintain social distancing. You'll be notified well in advance.
For indoor sessions... please sanitise your hands on the way in and wear a face mask until you're sat in your seat. Once you're sat down you can remove your mask if you want. The seats will be spaced out and no matter what the weather, doors and windows will be open, so please bring warm clothes if necessary.
For outdoor sessions... No need to wear a mask but please bring one anyway, just in case we have to move indoors. The most important thing to remember outdoors is to please continue to give others plenty of space. If you know someone well and want to be closer that's fine if you've agreed to it, but as a general rule give everyone distance if you're unsure. Especially if they're sat in their seat.
If you're unvaccinated...
From our survey results we know almost everyone in choir is double vaccinated. However, if you've chosen not to get the vaccine please just be extra considerate as some people will be nervous about this. Please consider wearing a mask throughout the session if indoors... and/or please keep extra distance and sit on the edge of your section (e.g. Mezzos) rather than in the middle, to help give others more space. Over time this will hopefully get easier for everyone, but we do have vulnerable members of choir so I'd ask you to just be extra extra careful for them. Thank you. Paul xx
