Coronavirus – Community Support
Royal Wootton Bassett Academy
During lockdown, Junior Voices have been working hard at home to learn a new song. Each student has performed and recorded their individual part at home and all the voices have been put together to create a Junior ‘Virtual’ Voices choir. Well done to all the year 7 and 8 students involved! To all who listen, we hope it brings you some joy during these uncertain times!
Wiltshire Council Leisure Services Update
With all Wiltshire leisure centres closed at the current time, the council is offering free access to a comprehensive online group exercise class programme. This is a great way to stay active while working from home, shielding or simply not able to access a similar offer in a local leisure centre.
There are fitness classes available every day of the week at different times throughout the day, with the vast majority requiring no equipment. All classes are being provided through Zoom, so residents will need to have this downloaded to the device that they wish to use to join the class.
For the full class programme and details on how to access all the classes please visit www.wiltshire.gov.uk/leisure-online-classes
