We have been back in operation for just over a month since our unexpected closure due to the pandemic and it has been great to see some familiar faces again!

As you can expect we have had to change our policies and procedures. Our hirers have embraced these new operations and we are all working together to make the building as safe as possible for all our guests. It is great to see the flexibility and enthusiasm from everyone to really make things work through these difficult times.

Not all of our groups have been able to return but we hope that in time they will. We have however got some new activities so maybe there is something happening which may be of interest to you? Check out our list of regular activities at the end of this newsletter.

We have some good availability for weekdays and weekends so if you are considering hiring the venue for your meeting, club or activity please get in touch to find out about dates and times for regular or one-off occasions.

As a Covid-19 secure venue operating within government guidelines we are able to host meetings and activities in our main hall for groups larger than 6 (up to a maximum of 30). Whilst activities may have 6 or more people participating (where it is safe to do so) it is important for all parties to maintain socially distant – 2 metres or 1 metre with actions taken to reduce the risk of transmission (where 2 metres is not viable) between households. For example, use of face coverings and encouraging good hand hygiene on entering premises and throughout visit.

If you are considering hiring our hall or meeting room and have any further questions about current regulations then please email me at wcccmanager@williamcollyn.co.uk or call 01223 279587 and I will be happy to help.
