Covid secure measures have been put in place in our buildings, along with special terms and conditions of hire, to keep everyone as safe as possible.

The Covid regulations that apply to community buildings are subject to change and we will continuously review both existing and potential bookings to ensure they comply with latest guidance. A risk assessment will be required from all hirers.
