Started these baby locks in March ’20 just before the COVID lockdown, so today was the first tidy up. Thank you Mark, for trusting me to start these locks for you and with your loyalty to my regular maintenance of them, especially as these locks are symbol of something special to you.
Tidy Up Fri 7th Aug ’20
First JātaDreads Client COVID Precautions
Beautiful summer’s day, helping to give Nancy and us, the meaningful experience that we aim to achieve, when one chooses us to have their fresh locks installed or maturing locks maintained. We are grateful to Nancy for her patience, as we meticulously followed the Government guidelines in providing our services.
Aboard our home, a widebeam canal boat, cruising the Kennet & Avon canal, basing ourselves in the ancient lands of Wiltshire. The room at the bow, where we practice and study the ancient teachings of Yoga, making it a sacred space. The room opens up into the countryside and through the french doors, there is a seated outdoor space, where one can take time out for refreshments, to connect with nature, soak up her peace and enjoy the canal.
Today was Philip’s first time locking hair for someone other than myself, he did amazingly well. It won’t be long before he is cool to go solo.
JataDreads Update ~ Opening up for Bookings.
Date for the relaxing of lockdown might be July 4th, nothing has been confirmed yet. I will keep you updated.
It is very important that you take into consideration, that I am in the high risk category, I have asthma. My asthma is controlled, however, asthma is a respiratory condition, therefore I will be taking all necessary precautions to ensure my health and safety.
Information of what to expect on the day of your appointment.
Please do not use public transport to get to us. If it’s not possible to walk or use a bicycle, then you must ask a member of your family living in the same household, to drive you to your appointment. Obviously, after your appointment, you are free to use public transport.
When you arrive, I will meet you at the car park that is close to where we are moored. Unfortunately, I will not be as tactile with my greeting as I usually am, I will keep some distance between us, please do not be offended about this.
You will be asked to wash your hands as soon as we reach the boat and I will be asking you to wear a mask, which I will provide. I will also be wearing a mask.
Weather permitting, I will have prepared a shady area for us outside, for me to work on your hair/locks.
All tools I use for locking, this includes combs etc, will have been sterilised.
More often than not, depending on how long an appointment is booked for, I prepared food as part of your day’s experience with us, makes me sad to tell you, that I will not be permitted to this for the foreseeable future. However, I will provide teas, coffees etc, and you will have to keep your mask on and only remove it enough, to drink. Unless of course, taking breaks and go sit outside, we can then remove masks and enjoy refreshments.
I appreciate this is all very clinical, really not ideal, especially as our time together should be meaningful. I will do my utmost best to continue to provide a space that is calming, positive and therapeutic.
When booking an appointment, I will confirm reiterating the above information, together with all the details you need to have, to get safely to our mooring.
Thank you in advance for your patience, loyalty and support.
