Frodsham Community Centre
Registered Charity No 520051
The Halloween lockdown announcement yesterday means that from Thursday, 5th November the Community Centre is likely to be closed again. Community Centres are not explicitly listed in the guidance but indoor and outdoor leisure facilities such as ... leisure centres and gyms ... theatres and concert halls are. Where groups are considering meeting in the Centre to take part in activities which commonly take place in the listed facilities then it is likely that the activity will not be permitted in the Community Centre either.
More detailed guidance is usually released by the government a few days after the announcements. When this happens this paragraph will be updated and clarified.
The lockdown is expected to last for at least 1 month. Thereafter we may return to the tier 2 restrictions as we were yesterday or possibly the enhanced tier 3 restrictions.
Welcome Back updated 30th September 2020
Following the Government announcement on the 9th September we have received a number of calls from concerned user groups about the new 'Simple and Clear' guidance which limits the number of people allowed to meet in domestic and public spaces indoor and outdoors to six. That means, for example that a family of 2 adults and 3 children would only be allowed to meet one additional person at a time.
Having read the written guidance released this morning it is clear that this was not intended to affect meetings or other events in Covid-19 secure premises such as Frodsham Community Centre provided that the existing guidance is followed. An extract of the relevant government text follows: If partaking in permitted activities users of COVID-19 secure community facilities should limit their social interactions with anyone they do not live with. Whilst activities may have 6 or more people participating (where it is safe to do so and capacity permits) 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 the visit.
Like most areas open to the public we have had to change how we operate and comply with Government Guidance on Covid-19 Safety but we have completed our risk assessments and we are now confident that with these adjustments we can still open with due regard to the safety of our Clients, our Volunteers and our Staff.
The latest issue of our Newsletter is here, our risk assessment is here, and the necessary additions to our conditions of hire updated 30/09/20 are here. As always our Booking Secretary will be available to address any concerns you may have and guide you through our booking procedures.

Frodsham Community Centre provides a base for local groups, and hires space for rehearsals, workshops, evening classes, family celebrations, children's parties and meetings.
The Centre is run by the Frodsham Community Association, and is governed by the FCA council made up of representatives of affiliated groups. We are a registered charity run by local residents. Our aim is to establish a centre which enhances the quality of life of local people by providing educational, arts and leisure opportunities. We want to create a place belonging to the community where people and groups can meet, socialize and network in a safe and friendly environment.
It is always important that a village or town has a sense of community. This has always been true in Frodsham and it was therefore a great asset when after years of planning and saving the Frodsham Community Centre was built in 1969 on a site in Fluin Lane.
