I think we can say that our first couple of weeks back have been very promising and reassuring. We have four groups back using the centre just as they did before and more groups are scheduled to return over the next few weeks. Most are just glad to be back! We have lost a few groups which have decided not to start up again but this has happened in the past from time to time and there is every likelihood that new groups will appear to take their place.
The centre is looking good. Our caretaker has the place looking spick and span after his deep clean and he has been very sensible in placing notices around the building - reminding users of the safety measures in place but without festooning the centre in paper. Users are helping keep things as safe as possible by wearing their masks, using the sanitiser facilities, completing the cleaning sheets in each room and so on.
So, we have had a gentle resumption of activities which is no bad thing and we look forward to more and more happening in the centre as other groups return in the weeks to come. Our caretaker now has a working computer and so taking messages and maintaining the booking system has become easier once more.
