The Flying Seagull Project Launches the Laugh N Play UK Tour

Posted on 08/10/2020 in Community

The Flying Seagull Project has launched the Laugh N Play UK tour – a series of live circus shows and/or workshops across the whole of the UK for the rest of 2020 and extending into 2021. The shows are designed to acknowledge the limitations we have in the world without allowing these to restrict our imaginations. The themes of the show explore travel, experimentation, meeting new people, solving problems and staying positive.

The project aims to connect and collaborate with both grassroots and larger organisations who are providing support and activities for vulnerable people and disadvantaged communities by working together to offer safe socially distanced free shows that children and their families can experience together. The Flying Seagulls are really keen to hear from anyone who feels this show would be appropriate for and appreciated by the communities they support, and we’re very happy to run as many shows or workshops as needed to ensure everyone can access them. Get in contact with us and we’ll come wherever you are, whenever you’re free and give everyone a good giggle!

The new Laugh N Play UK show features all the fun and silliness the Seagulls are famous for – stories, music, magic and clowning. It has been specially devised with Covid-19 safety in mind, delivering a shared live experience which feels as close to normal as possible. We sanitise and set up a socially distanced, safe show space, using props to provide social distancing for the audience. The interactive show lasts around one hour and will include a mix of storytelling, magic, circus, clowning and music, always delivered with full social distancing and sanitisation measures in place. People will be encouraged to participate, with feedback gathered from partners and beneficiaries.

Isobel Wolff (clown name Wolfy), Project Leader at The Flying Seagull Project, said: “It is high time that kids who have been stuck inside for months can finally come together in a safe way to share a much-needed bellyful of laughter. We can’t wait to get back out there and do what we do best, spreading smiles face-to-face. Our visits are completely free for eligible groups, from youth clubs to refugee centres and hospitals. All they need is an outdoor or well-ventilated indoor space.”

Important Message From Public Health England

Posted on 23/09/2020 in Community

An update on local cases of Covid-19

Last week, there were 28 new reported cases of coronavirus in Camden (though that figure may rise due to a lag in testing data) compared to 65 cases the week before. However, due to some people having difficulties accessing tests, these figures may not be a completely accurate reflection of the situation in Camden.

Thankfully, cases are relatively low in Camden, but London is such an inter-connected city that we must all be extra vigilant in following public health advice to prevent further spread of infection across our city. This includes self-isolating if you have symptoms which is important because it will prevent people passing it on. However, we know that self-isolating will be hard for some people, so we are asking anyone that needs support with it to contact us – 020 7974 4444 (option 9).

Please help us share this advice by forwarding this email on to your communities, sharing our social media content (Twitter, Facebook or NextDoor) or screen grabbing it and sharing via instant message groups.

Today, the Prime Minister addressed Parliament about additional forthcoming restrictions being introduced across the country. He is due to give a televised update tonight so we will update you on the details as soon as we can.

The Leader of Camden Council, Cllr Georgia Gould, published a statement on the situation in London and how we are supporting communities on Monday. You can read it here.

The NHS COVID-19 app

The NHS COVID-19 app will help to prevent the spread of coronavirus by helping to identify people who have been in close recent contact with someone who has tested positive.

If someone tests positive for coronavirus, the app will automatically identify people they have been in recent close contact with by sending a notification straight to their mobile phone asking them to self-isolate.

If you do not want to use the app, or do not have a mobile phone, you can continue to leave your contact details with places you visit.

What are you being asked to do?

Ahead of the launch of the NHS COVID-19 app on Thursday 24 September, voluntary organisations and places of worship are asked to download and display their own QR posters. This isn’t a legal requirement though. This will enable everyone with the app to ‘check-in’ so that if a staff member or visitor tests positive, people who came into close contact with them can be traced and asked to self-isolate.

To create a free QR poster, go to and follow the instructions. You can print off as many posters as you need. Please stick them up at the appropriate entrances in a visible and safe position and make sure they cannot be easily removed.

Please note that you will still need to keep a written log of visitors for people who do not have access to a smart phone or choose not to use the app.

If you want to support the app but do not have a printer, most high streets have nearby print shops, or you could ask a nearby business to let you use their printer. If you are really struggling to print one though, call us on 020 7974 4444 (option 9).
