Covid-19 and the Community Centre

What will be open?
The office will be open for you to make enquiries about activities, make future bookings and to find out about membership and the benefits.
The Toilets will be available for each bookable room in that immediate area, this is to ensure that there is no need to move around the Centre. We ask that visitors take extra care to maintain social distancing and cleanliness. Cleaning will take place regularly so please expect brief periods of closure though this will continue to be done during the change over of bookings. The 2 disabled toilets in the main building will be available for visitor and staff use, these will be cleaned at regular intervals.

How do we book a place?
As our Community groups have started back. These include:
Art classes, Watercolour pencil workshop and sketchbook workshop, Stitch and Chat and Bingo.

How do we enter the building?
On arrival, please come to the Main entrance for entry to the Office, Main hall and the Brenda Horwood room. Entry to the Gill Garratt room will be by the double white doors on the side of the building
What safety measures do you have in place?
When you arrive, you will be asked to go directly to the room you are using and not to go to other parts of the Centre. We ask that you only use the facilities only for that room. We kindly ask that you follow the direction of signage and practice current social distancing measures. The Centre has been deep cleaned and sanitising stations will be available throughout the building where there is no access to soap and hot water, for your use.
Do we need to wear face-covering?
Face-coverings are no longer mandatory though we ask that you still wear one when moving in the communal areas.
Can I still help the Centre at this time?
We have volunteering availability in the cafe, garden and office. If you are interested in any areas do get in touch.
