Community Centres

Our Community Centres are now able to open again and some activities can restart, so if you’re an event organiser we need to hear from you!

If you wish to restart we need to meet with you to talk about: 

  • Your activity or event to ensure that it can be done in a COVID-secure way noting that numbers are limited to six, inclusive of you as the organiser
  • Full adherence to the Council’s Safe Systems of Work for Community Centres
  • Production of a relevant Track & Trace System

Please contact the housing team on 0800 561 0010 to discuss the safe re-opening of your activity or event.

Lifting Lockdown Roadmap

In the next few months restrictions will start to be eased across the UK. Not only will it mean lockdown will be lifted but it will lift the happiness of our businesses, communities and people. Find out more about the lifting lockdown roadmap and what it means for you below.

Help us all to stay on course with the roadmap, get regular twice weekly testing for COVID-19, especially if you've been out and about and, as soon as you're eligible, get your COVID-19 vaccine.
