Dear Children & Parents
Updated 3rd April 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic Hornimans is closed for now. We are planning online activities to trial out for our registered children & young people who are already members.
IF YOUR CHILD IS ALREADY A MEMBER
You are invited to download the consent forms (to be signed by a legal guardian.) We will not be contacting anyone we do not know. Hornimans Virtual Playground is being trialed to see if we can provide a different way of working with the children for us to be able to offer support, provide activities and keep them occupied online during these very strange times.

FORM 2: Online Consent Form
PLEASE PRINT, READ, SIGN & RETURN VIA EMAIL (see info on form) or post hard copy into our post box on the green gate at the playground. Staff will contact you on the phone once we receive the fully completed forms.
Support for our vulnerable families
Please keep in touch with the staff team for more info on our online sessions and the Tuesday food club.
Big Thank YOU to the FELIX PROJECT for providing us with the food to help our children and their families.
Further support offered within RBKC if needed please see the links below.
This past weekend, Leader of the Council, Cllr Elizabeth Campbell and Deputy Leader, Cllr Kim Taylor-Smith, helped out at our COVID-19 Hub in the borough.
Practising social distancing guidelines, the two aided volunteers in their response to elderly residents, assisting with the delivery of food and necessary supplies as well as offering support to the clinically vulnerable who have already been identified and contacted by the NHS.
If you think you are eligible (or know someone who is) and should be receiving help from the hub, contact us by emailing C19Hub@rbkc.gov.uk or call us at 020 7361 4326.
