Friday 20th March 2020 Coronavirus Update
- CLOSURE until further notice
We are taking collective resolute action to minimise social contact at the Hilt to protect our residents, users, volunteers and staff. The Hilt Community Centre will be closed until further notice to all members of the public other than those people authorised and required to support the key worker & vulnerable children initiative as set out in guidance from central government. We will be maintaining a strict sanitisation program during this time and require all users of the building who are authorised to enter during this period to comply. We are taking on-board all advice from the Department of Health / Governments Chief Medical Officer and Local Health Authorities and we really appreciate your support during this unprecedented situation.
For further information please use the phone, website or email contacts. We will review this situation daily but, at this time, we are not in a position to forecast a date when we will be able to reopen. We have, of course, taken the decision to suspend our Social Program of events within the ‘What’s On’ page until further notice but will aim to reschedule as soon as it is safe to do so, again, in line with government public health advice. The Hilt management team will maintain the building and relevant communications to assist local residents and the local authority as necessary.
