Operation of the mechanics Institute is currently suspended due to the corona virus challenge. We will be back to normal as son as it is safe to do so.....
3 July 2020
Following the Governments recent announcement that Community Centres can reopen, we are delighted that from week commencing the 13 July 2020 some limited use of the Mechanics will be resumed. In the first instance we will be opening Mi’Café with reduced hours and a reduced menu.
There are lots of changes on how the building can be used following a detailed Risk Assessment by the Directors. There are new ways of doing things to ensure users and volunteers alike are kept as safe as we can possibly make the building for everyone. There can be no turning a blind eye to things we must do!
Everything that will be asked of you when visiting us is done with the one purpose, that of protecting you and everyone else.
We are in very changing and difficult times. No one knows what will happen in the months coming, what does appear to be a certainty, that it will be some time before we can go back to what was a ‘norm’, well for some time at least.
We will try and keep you as informed as possible as things open up, things change, rules relaxed or improved. Check out our Covid-19 page which has all the latest information.
Best wishes to everyone and we look forward to seeing you in the Mechanics when you are able.
