What’s On at Partington Library & Wellbeing Centre
If you would like to join in any of these activities but feel a bit unsure, just pop in or contact us and one of our friendly colleagues will meet and introduce you.
As you may know, the government changed their restrictions and guidance around Covid. As such, we have adapted our policies and procedures to reflect the new guidance.
We know the changes will have left some of us nervous about re-joining groups and accessing services at the centre, so here is a list of the ways we are continuing to make your visit to the centre safe:
• room capacities have been reduced and we are asking activity leaders and partners to ventilate rooms where possible.
• Our QR codes are available for visitors to check in at the centres.
• We are encouraging our staff to continue regularly testing themselves for Covid.
• All staff, volunteers and visitors are required to wear masks when walking around the building and in areas of low ventilation.
• sanitiser stations are located around the building.
For more information you can contact us on 0161 775 1912, email email@example.com, or pop in to ask at our reception.
