Trustees at Loundsley Green Community Trust (the charity that runs the centre) have met to discuss access to the centre during this crisis. We have to balance the safety of the local community with community needs to provide support for their neighbours at this difficult time.
All groups apart from the FoodBank have announced that they are not meeting at present. However, the centre is not formally closed and we are open to approaches from the local community if people need to use the centre. Local residents will be able to make their own decisions on whether or not they should organise things in the centre or attend activities.
An additional cleaning & safety regime is in place at the centre and we ask you to observe NHS guidance on hand washing (minimum 20 seconds please) and distancing (minimum 2 metres / 6 feet please) in order that we can all remain healthy.
Specific activities for social connection between older people have been asked to not run until government guidance on this changes:
- Young at Heart – Monday afternoons – Suspended until further notice.
- Chit Chat Club – Thursday afternoons – Suspended until further notice.
We will update you of any further plans and decisions as they are made.
