Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the new Tier 2 restrictions the government has put in place, community centres will only be open for essential sessions.
See more information about the local restrictions here.
Updated guidance for multi-use facilities such as community centres is available here.
The Council will be working closely with the management committees to re-open the community centres in line with the latest government advice and ensuring they have a comprehensive risk assessment and confirm the venue is safe to open to the public. (Opening dates may vary.)
