The Centre is now closed for the duration of the current public health emergency
As part of the latest government lockdown restrictions announced yesterday, community centres have now been officially ordered to close. So we’re now closed for the duration of the current public health emergency. We’ll be regularly checking the premises for security and safety reasons, and Croydon Council’s security patrol team will be making periodic visits too.
This is a sad chapter in the 85 year history of the Centre, but we’re not alone. Everyone’s in the same boat. Let’s hope for a speedy resolution of the crisis. In the meantime, we wish all our users and the wider community well, and hope that everyone stays safe and healthy. When this is over, we’ll still be here, ready to serve the community with our rooms and facilities, for the purposes of education, training, sport, recreation, arts, culture, social enterprise and community development. We’ll be needing all those things more than ever, once this horrible time has passed.
