COVID-19

LATEST UPDATE 17TH MAY 2021:

The Centre is now open for those activities which are allowed under Step 3 of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

We continue to work within government guidelines to ensure we mitigate risks associated with COVID-19  for anyone who visits the Centre.

Whilst the rollout of the Government’s vaccination programme is proceeding well, the programme is not compulsory, and vaccines will not be 100% effective against symptomatic infection in those vaccinated, or 100% effective against severe disease and death. We, therefore, continue to require all visitors to the Centre to wear face coverings, maintain social distance and sanitise hands.

Furthermore, following the Government’s announcement that twice weekly rapid tests are to be available to everyone in England from 9th April 2021, we encourage visitors to take advantage of these to further help reduce the risk of transmission of the virus.

When taking bookings for the hire of the halls and meeting rooms whilst the country is on the various steps of the roadmap out of lockdown, these can only be for activities listed as allowed. We will need to impose restrictions on numbers depending on the type of activity to ensure that social distancing requirements can be adhered to. All hirers will also need to provide a risk assessment, or equivalent, demonstrating how the class or event will be run within government guidelines for COVID-19. Detailed guidelines on how we expect our hirers to use the building during the restrictions imposed by the pandemic can be found here.

In the event of a case of suspected COVID-19 in the Centre, we reserve the right to close the Centre at short notice for a minimum period of 72 hours. The Trust shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, consequential or special loss incurred by the hirer or a third party affected by such a closure.
