Restarting activities for existing groups
Some activities are able to restart at our community centres if permitted under the current government guidelines. We will contact existing users over the next few weeks to discuss your return plans and to outline the arrangements which will be in place to ensure your safety.
The current restrictions on social gatherings prevent indoor gatherings of more than six people (or two households) from taking place.
The following activities which are exempt from the ‘rule of 6’ may plan to restart activities from 5 July:
- support groups
- childcare provided by a person who is registered under Part 3 of the Childcare Act 2006 or supervised activities for children
- formal education or training
- places of worship
At this moment, we are only able to take bookings for our registered users.
We will be in touch
Your local centre manager will be in contact with you over the next few weeks. They will discuss your plans for return and outline the arrangements which will be in place to ensure the safety of centre users.
Managers will also be able to discuss additional requirements for returning groups such as:
- covid risk assessments
- attending induction dates
- signing our updated conditions of hire
Keeping you safe
As with all public buildings, our community rooms will have a reduced capacity to ensure social distancing. We are also asking for some flexibility with regard to session start and finish times to avoid different groups from arriving and departing at the same time.
All facilities are certificated covid-secure and will be operating with social distancing measures in place including protective screens, one-way systems and 2m social distancing. Face coverings must be worn inside our buildings (except for exemptions) and hirers must keep a record of attendees for 21 days after each session.
