Towcester Town Council Venues Remain Closed

Posted: Tue, 15 Sep 2020 14:32 by Lizzi Bucklow-Holt

Towcester Town Hall, The Sawpits Centre and Towcester Youth & Community Centre will remain closed to hirers until at least November 2020.

Regretfully, the council voted on Monday 14th September to keep premises closed for the time being. The situation will be reviewed monthly going forward as the situation constantly evolves. Below is a longer explanation. More »

As you can imagine, there were lengthy discussions about the pros and cons of reopening the council's premises. Much research has been undertaken into the council's risks and responsibilities. We were gearing up to put measures in place and had an action plan for reopening. However, following the government's announcement on Friday 11th September and signs that infection rates are increasing, the council took the view that it is too early to consider reopening the premises at this time.

The hirers that would potentially be able to use the premises vary widely and each brings their own risks and requirements. The council has a duty of care not only to all hirers, but also council staff and permanent tenants of the buildings. The council has suffered from the loss of income from the hiring of premises and less than a third of regular bookings are looking to return as soon as possible. With the increased requirement for regular deep cleaning, additional measures that need to be put in place, and the physical restrictions of each individual building, its also touch and go whether it is currently financially viable to reopen.

We understand that this will be a big disappointment to many of you who are eager to resume your normal activities or make new bookings.

We will continue to monitor the ever-changing situation and will keep you updated.

Thank you for your understanding. » Less
