Following the Government’s latest announcement about the banning of more than 6 people meeting whch takes effect from Monday, 14 September, THCH has taken the decision to close all community centres from this date until further notice.
This means the planned re-opening of the centres currently closed will be postponed and with regret, the 3 venues currently open, and operating at a reduced capacity, will be closed.
The Government announcement states:
- Social gatherings of more than six people in England will not be allowed in law from Monday 14 September
- The new rule applies to people in private homes, indoors and outdoors, and places such as pubs, restaurants, cafes and public outdoor spaces
- It applies to all ages
- The rule does not apply to schools and workplaces, or weddings, funerals and organised team sports
- People who ignore police could be fined £100 – doubling with each offence to a maximum of £3,200
This is sad news as we know many of groups and volunteers are keen to get back to our centres and we share their frustration and disappointment about having to close our venues once again.
