Covid-19 Guidance

Following the announcement on 22nd February regarding the Government roadmap out of lockdown, we can now announce that the Hall is open for room bookings. The Café in the Hall & our community provision will begin again week commencing 17th May. 

We’re very much looking forward to welcoming everyone back safely.

We realise that there is still much uncertainty about what you can and can’t do surrounding the guidelines but you can be sure that we’re all working hard to make the Hall as safe as possible. Once we reopen some Covid protocols will still be in place so please bear this in mind when visiting the Hall. We will continue to offer test and trace and temperature check everyone upon entry to the Hall. We have full risk assessments available to view and a team of staff and trustees who are all committed to the safety of Hall users.

Although restrictions are lifting gradually Fearon Community Association (FCA) believe it should be at our managers discretion when we remove some or all of the measures we currently have in place. Our robust cleaning schedule will remain in place for the forseeable future so that everyone visiting feels safe.

During the pandemic we put together a quick reference guide for visitors and have decided that we will be keeping this model active until we are absolutely sure that it is safe to remove all the measure mentioned. We believe that we should remain cautious until the end of 2021, carefully relaxing our protocols as we see fit. If you have any questions or are uncertain about anything then more detailed information is available on request so please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can also download the guide as a pdf here.
