Abermule Community Centre Strength in Community

COVID-19 Toolkit

Abermule Communtiy Centre is committed to provide a safe and comfortable environment to all volunteers and Centre users. From the 20th of July, Community Centres in Wales have have been able to reopen.

The trustee group have completed a compressive risk assessment in line with national guidance and legislation. This has identified safe systems, additional equipment, signage, additional cleaning, which we have installed / implemented at the Centre.

Wall mounted alcohol hand gel dispensers are installed outside each room. Each room is also equipped with disinfectant wipes and a pump action hand gel dispenser. PPE such as disposable gloves are also available.

All groups are required to complete a risk assessment prior to accessing the Centre a copy should be provided to the Communtiy Centre. This is so we can ensure that there are no issues with others that may also be in the building and we are able to offer any additional support if required. This may also identify measures that may benefit other Centre users.

Whilst at the centre it is essential that all users comply with signage and other directions.

To comply with social distancing regulations we have had to temporarily adjust the operational capacity of all of our rooms. Please consider this when planning meetings and group activity, you may wish to consider using the Main Hall as this has a greater space and higher capacity (this may mean adjusting your normal meeting dependant on availability). The centre may also allocate parking areas or ask you to stagger starting times to ensure that multiple groups using the Centre do not cause “bottle necks” or “pinch points”.

We have already increased the Centre cleaning schedule to ensure facilities are cleaned more frequently. However, to ensure that the necessary standards are maintained and to limit cross contamination between groups, we have made the decision to implement fixed time-slots for evening bookings. This will mean only one group will be able to access each room during an evening session. We are able to be slightly more flexible with our daytime bookings.

Fixed booking slots along with reduced room capacity will reduce the availability of Centre facilities, groups may not be able to meet as frequently as usual. When you are ready to return to Abermule Community Centre, please contact us so we can book your rooms. All previous bookings have been cancelled and at present the self-booking facility is not in operation. We will do our best to accommodate you, however, we will ask groups to be flexible whilst this is in operation.

On this page you will find useful resources to support you and your group in safely accessing Abermule Communtiy Centre.
