COVID-19 Update

To all our service users (our MOCS extended family)


The Stage 2 round of shutdowns which came into effect at midnight on 25 March 2020 includes community centres: libraries, youth centres, neighbourhood centres and MOCS!

As you know we had already suspended all our groups and activities until the beginning of Term 2. This announcement now means all MOCS usual activities and groups are suspended ‘for the duration’ – that is, until government announces it is safe for activities to resume.

Staff are working from home, so you can still contact us via email or our mobile numbers – find the details on the MOCS Team page of this website.

We’ll be spending these last weeks of term and the school break exploring what we can do to support you, our community, during this time of physical-distance-but-social-connectedness. This will include on-line activities and resources.

If you have any ideas or suggestions of what you would like to see us doing or information and resources that you need during this time,  please email them to and we’ll see what we can do.

Meanwhile we’ll keep in touch via our Facebook page.

Please all of you stay safe: wash your hands thoroughly and regularly; cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow; stay home unless it’s absolutely necessary to go out; and when out stay a safe distance from others, for your wellbeing and theirs.

AND, as Billy Booksie says:
‘Stories, Rhymes and Play, ev’ry single day”.
In these times it’s more important than ever for all of us – children and grown-ups alike!

We’re missing seeing you all. Take Care.
