SpOt DRAMA ONLINE STORIES
 
Once again, throughout this latest lockdown, we have organised for Lydia of SpOt Drama to deliver a new zoom story each week. They will be on Fridays at 2.30 and Lydia will send everyone who signs up resources to prepare in the morning before the story. This way Fridays at least can have a schedule and hopefully be more stress free for you. To remain updated about this initiative please ask to join our private 21&Co/SpOt Drama Facebook page and Tatty will
accept you. You must be a 21&Co member:
