Firstly, on behalf of Quinborne, we hope you are well and have manged to stay safe during this difficult time.
In line with current government guidelines we would like to announce our plans regarding the reopening of Quinborne Community Centre.
The current aim is to have the building safely up and running for the end of July, this will allow the staff to have a phased return during August.
We may be in a position to start offering certain groups a phased return during August, if you would like to discuss this option further please contact us at; [email protected]
If all this goes well and the current government guidelines do no not change, we anticipate the building will be open and fully operational for the new academic term starting 7th September.
A substantial number of changes will have to take place for us to safely reopen, these will include; introducing a one-way system around the building, stop and go points, staggering group start and finishing times, reducing the number of tables in the café area and potentially introducing a queuing system for entrance to the building.
There will also be hand sanitiser points placed at numerous junctions throughout the building, Perspex screens will have been erected, all additional furniture will have been removed from rooms and stored outside of the building, there will be no tables in the foyer / corridors allowing for a better flow of traffic and all tables and chairs will be sanitised between groups and classes.
You will also see numerous posters and signs regarding Coronavirus around the centre as well as in all the rooms. Warning signs will also be placed on the entry doors advising you not to enter if you are showing any signs of Covid-19.
We have also made changes to the taps in all of the toilets so there will be no issues with water pressure and hot water.
We will of course stay up to date with the government guidelines and make changes where and when it is applicable to do so.
As far as Quinborne is concerned the main thing is for all of us to make all our users feel as safe and secure as possible.
Stay tuned to the website for more information and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
