Coronvirus Updates and FAQ's
Here we will be posting updates on our activities, events, classes etc. as we react in line with union advice and government guidlines. Please check back regulalry.
1. *NEW* Classes are CANCELLED indefinitely. We are so so sad to announce this as we know classes are at the heart of the society. However, it is just not the safe or responsible thing to keep the studio open any more. There is the possibiltiy of still acquiring 1 to 1's just message Eve, Sasha and Jenni (numbers below) if you are interested. Price will vary. We will of course re-start classes as soon as we are able to.
1. *UPDATED* The Hallam Union Pole versus University of Sheffield Varsity is offically postponed "indefinitely" as they have pulled out. We are working behind the scenes with Walkabout at potential postponed dates. Once we have conformation we will update you with full details. Please be aware we do not fall under the official university Varisty. Their statements do not apply to our event.
2. As of right now we intend for our May showcase to go ahead. Deatails may be delayed as we are working to sort alternatives for Varisty. Please bear with us. If you have signed up for the May showcase please continue to attend classes (if you can) to try and prepare. Privates are availble still with Sasha.
3. Tickets for Varisty we are unable to refund as of right now. With no access to our society pot we cannot process refunds. However, please be aware we may not offer refunds as the money may still head to our two chosen charities from our own ticket sales. During this difficult time they need it more than ever. This is to be disscussed between commitees and we will let you know an update when we have a decsion.
1. Socials are now cancelled for the forseable future. However you may still use your society cards at our various sponsers whenever you choose to go out. We will bring socials back as soon as we are able to.
1. Kit has been ordered and I will have them delivered sometime next week. As of right now I am no longer in Sheffield due to personal reasons. You will of course get your kit if you have ordered it you may just have to wait an extended amount of time until I am again availble. I am sorry about this incovinece. I will update you as soon as I am able to hand out kit.
2. If you have ordered varisty kit we cannot offer refunds as it is from an outside company. I am incredbly sorry for this inconvience with Varisty being cancelled. We hope you can still enjoy your Team Hallam Pole kit, see it as a souvenir of surviving these mad times!
3. *NEW* Mogrel croc the suppliers of our kit are now working on a reduced staffing and are having some supply difficulties. Kit may be delayed due to this. I will post when I have recieved the kit.
1. The world keeps spinning and nominations and elections MUST go ahead. The society will exist next year and it needs a committee to head it. Nominations will close this Friday and Elections will open on Monday. Voting is all online this year and so shopuld not be disrupted whatever happens. We will be reminding you everyday to get on and VOTE!!

So we will be livestreaming our AGM on Monday 23rd 7pm on our memebrs only facebook group. Please if you can spare the time sit down with your laptop and listen to these girls speeches.
