Spice is going online!
Mar 19, 2020
In light of the advice recently announced by the UK Government relating to social gatherings and non-essential travel Spice are going online. We launched with our 11am Coffee time yesterday which we felt was really well received and appreciated and will continue this every day. This is a chance for members who are self-isolating, working from home or simply want to say hello to come along to our virtual cafe and join in the chat. We'll discuss what’s going on with daily updates to keep you in contact with others over the coming weeks/months. We are also planning a full series of online gatherings including workshops, quizzes, talks, anything to help. The Spice website is being updated daily with these features.
Each Spice group will be putting on its own online events but don’t let that stop you from joining in – everyone is welcome to every event so even with a travel embargo you can easily meet your friends in other groups and areas around the country, all from your favourite armchair! The best and easiest way to keep abreast of all the new online events is to simply select Online in the event search on the Spice website and then search and all the events will be filtered showing everything in one place no matter which group is hosting (just make sure your group choice is set to ALL!).
At a time like this we will all be pulling together. Spice relies on income from events and membership. As you can imagine, in the current climate our event income has stopped. We are issuing refunds rather than taking bookings. We are still receiving membership fees and ask you keep these going wherever possible.
We don't however expect you pay this for nothing. We will be hosting a whole series of live, free events and sharing other great events that appear online. We also yesterday announced a membership amnesty the gives every member a £10 voucher each month valid on any Spice event to spend when we return to normal. These vouchers will be issued to EVERYONE on a monthly basis for as long we are in this position. We want to help you but we need your help to. We can work through this and once again enjoy great days, nights out, weekends and holidays together in the future
