The Barlow – Covid19 update
The Barlow Trustees and Operational Management teams met yesterday afternoon (Monday 16 March) to agree on a strategy moving forward in light of the current situation.
It was decided that we will follow the Government guidelines in all respects and the advice at that time was to carry on with caution and increased hygiene practices. We had made provision for each user group to make its own decision on whether to carry on meeting at the Barlow and that the Barlow would kept open until such time as Government advice changed.
Three hours later the Government advice did change and we have all been advised to avoid non-essential contact for the foreseeable future.
Therefore it is with great reluctance that we must stop all gatherings at the Barlow with immediate effect and all User Groups will be informed accordingly. The Reading Room Cafe is now closed (from March 16) until further notice.
The Barlow office will be closed, but if you need help you can leave a message on 01204 852216 or alternatively, you can e-mail email@example.com. In either case, we shall respond to you as quickly as we are able.
This is a truly dynamic situation and as the position changes we will notify immediately. We are also looking to put in place some form of shopping collection service for the most vulnerable in our community, although the details of such a service has yet to be agreed.
The Barlow is there to be the Community hub for all and we wish it to serve the community as well as is safe and practicable throughout this crisis and beyond, if you need help during this difficult period or believe that you can provide help please do not hesitate to contact us.
