Good Evening Good People of South Wales,
I know that many of you have asked your local branch teams if/when we are going to reopen our branches so that you can get back to the face to face tabletop roleplay gaming you all enjoy.
We have over the last few weeks dropped into as many groups as possible and taken onboard the view points, opinions, ramblings, thoughts and feelings of all of you as members of The Role Play Haven – South Wales. Whether you call the Cardiff Central or Cardiff North branch your home.
The team and I have come to the decision that to protect you as our members, that we are going to remain as an online only group of branches until January 2021.
This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, as you may see communications going out for our other branches that they themselves plan to reopen. Although our decision to remain online only comes with a new set of challenges, we feel that in the interest of the safety of you as our membership and also us as volunteers that now is not the right time to reopen The Role Play Haven – South Wales.
The branch teams and I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your continued support during these unprecedented time. We also want to reassure you that as soon as we feel it is safe to do so then we will look to reopen your local branch at a venue close to you.
What these plans look like, at the moment we are unable to say –it may well be a hybrid model that includes both online gaming and face to face gaming, but this is still in discussion. As always, we will continue to update you as soon as we are able.
We have committed to offer a whole host of online games for you to enjoy, support the Discord Server or whatever medium it is that you choose to game within and ultimately now begin to produce an online presence that will be almost as rewarding as the physical gaming many of you enjoy without the risk from Covid-19.
I myself, would like to reaffirm my usual message that my proverbial door is always open and should you wish to discuss anything or need the support of your local branch team and I, then we are here to support you as before.
Your local branch teams have not changed and further communications regarding membership and what you can expect to see between now and December. As always here at The Role Play Haven we are committed to fun, safe gaming and our top priority is getting this right across The Role Play Haven Family.
