We are ‘Covid-secure’ and open to groups
In line with the latest government guidance, the Centre has now largely reopened for user groups – although there are still some activities which are not allowed, such as indoor live performances.
We’ve taken all the steps set out in the government guidance to make the Centre a ‘Covid-safe’ environment: hand sanitiser stations, an enhanced cleaning regime and materials, social distancing signage throughout, limits on the numbers of people in different rooms within the building, a full risk assessment, and so on.
We’ve also introduced a short set of Covid-related rules which every group wishing to resume activities must follow. Most importantly this includes the requirement for each group to keep names and contact details of attendees at each session (and retain for three weeks); to carry out a risk assessment specifically relating to the group’s activities; and to put in place a protocol for maintaining social distancing within the group’s activities.
Beyond this, owing to restrictions on numbers and some ambiguity in the guidelines, we’re currently unable to take bookings for one-off lettings such as parties and weddings. We hope to be able to do so once the situation becomes clearer over coming weeks.
We do however have availability for new user groups wishing to run activities at the Centre, so please get in touch if you have a class, club, society or other group or activity you would like to run.
