Jan Hayes, owner, was looking to returning with her firm to entertain people at Glastonbury.
Now the children’s party entertainment experts are looking to diversify and use their skills in other ways.
She said: “This is a scary old time for my little business. I honestly don’t know what to do with myself. I’m usually sat at my laptop all day sorting events, taking bookings and chatting through parties.. but nothing.
“I’m trying to think up some ways to carry on going, and for my team to still get some kind of work through all this, as everyone is suffering. Ideas…
” Babysitting, If schools go into lockdown and your family aren’t showing any symptoms. I have a strong team of amazing people all great with kids! Storytelling, crafts, sing songs! Hey we could even do it as characters! If you need to go shopping, go into work call us to help!
” FaceTime calls, feeling fed up, had to cancel your special day, why not get your fave character to call you.
“Isolation visits, just like our elf and bunny spotting visits, look through your window and let us perform in your garden! Bound to raise a smile. Ideal for birthdays or cheer up! We are also looking at some sort of way to do online parties too!
“Just some ideas to keep us afloat! If any of these appeal to you please let us know.”
“From tonight all our live yoga classes will also be available online at a lower price to try and keep our business running, thank you to everyone for your support.”
