Covid Update September 2020

We plan to start reopening the Newtown Community Centre from 14th September. Our priority is to ensure that we can provide a safe space for all our users, with this in mind we will continue to review the situation and carefully plan for our safe return.  Initially this will only be for regular users, with whom we have been consulting.

We would like to thank all of our customers for their support and understanding at this difficult time and look forward to opening our doors and welcoming you back.

IMPORTANT for all users – only the organiser of each event should enter by the front door. Everyone else (except those who need the disabled access) should use the French doors on the verandah side to enter and leave the room where the event is being held.

The kitchen will not be available either for booking or for informal use. Food and drink should not be brought into the Centre, except users own water bottles. The water bottle fountain outside will be switched on. The loft room will not be available for booking, though groups using the storage cupboards will be able to access them.
