Relaxing of Covid19 Restrictions

Recent announcements from central government regarding the relaxing of Covid19 restrictions had enabled the Trust to ask regular members to return for just two days a week, while observing social distancing, hand washing and the wearing of protective face masks where appropriate.

This approach has been successful and while we are observing government recommendations it is apparent that we can not to allow the general public full access until we are sure that all subsequent precautions have been taken.

While lockdown had been relaxed a great deal of essential maimtenance work has taken place to improve members working conditions and safety. This includes completion of the boat slipway shed roof (as we speak) and a rewiring of the main workshop areas which includes new LED lighting.

So, while it is essential to observe restrictions, members are now welcome to attend especially to help with cleaning of the workshop and re-planning and sorting the main reception area. If you are interested then please email before attending:

Opening Times are: Tuesday and Wednesday 09.30 – 15.30

Please note that access is by the riverside shutter door (around the back). Main front door entrance is closed until further notice.
