The Community Centre re-opened on Tuesday 1st September. Local clubs and societies will gradually start to meet again. There have been a few hires during August to enable us to check the COVID-19 protection that we have put in place. The bar is open but with reduced opening hours.
We have taken the opportunity of the lock-down to have the May Woollerton Hall and the foyer area redecorated, there is a fresh look in the Centre. We have been installing sanitising gel dispensers, instigating a one-way system and putting into place a cleaning plan. Unfortunately there will have to be some restrictions. The kitchens will be closed and the main toilets will be for one person use at a time. We will not be taking cash, just card or online sales. All users of the centre will have to social distance (i.e. keep 2m apart unless additional measures are in place to enable only 1m distancing) and sanitise their hands when they enter the building. Since 8th August 2020 it has been illegal to enter any Community Centre without wearing face protection (unless exempted in law) so please ensure you bring your face mask or shield with you.
Hirers will be contacting the people who attend their meetings to make sure everyone knows the correct time to arrive so we ensure people attending different rooms do not mix with each other. Everyone coming into the Centre will be required to provide their contact details as part of NHS Track and Trace. Details should be given to your group organiser, the bar otherwise to reception.
We are working to restart some of the events run by the Community Association:- The New Royalty Cinema, centreTalks and the bar quiz hope to restart this year. centerJazz, bingo, indoor boot sales, live music are all under review and will only restart when it is safe and economic to do so, probably in 2021. The re-start of the Annual Orchestral Concert planned for October 2020 has been posponed to 2021.
