15th June 2021
All users need to be aware that following yesterday’s Government announcement, the existing Covid-19 restrictions will continue to apply until July 19th. If you’re a new ‘returnee’ and you don’t know about the restrictions, please contact the Booking Clerk for more information.
FUTURE PARTY BOOKINGS
21st May 2021
The Trustees of Abbey Fields Community Centre have expressed concerns about allowing the centre to be booked for parties and similar gatherings. There are three main reasons:
1. The continuing threat from the Covid-19 pandemic.
2. Most damage (usually denied) has been caused during party bookings.
3. Instances of aggression towards trustees responding to complaints from local residents about noise etc.
A possible solution to the issue could be the formation of a User Group specifically formed by interested local residents to administer, manage and take responsibility for party bookings. Trustees would be pleased to support and advise such a group.
ROOM CHARGES 2021-22
20th May 2021
Abbey Fields Trustees have decided that there will be no changes to room charges this financial year. The trustees are committed to keeping prices as low as possible whilst ensuring that the centre’s facilities are well-maintained and improved.
20th May 2021
Abbey Fields Trustees have decided that, for the foreseeable future, no party bookings will be accepted. Priority is currently being given to regular bookings. Bookings for one-off events will be considered but not necessarily accepted.
Abbey Fields plans to reopen on May 17th
5th May 2021
Abbey Fields plans to reopen on May 17th, subject to the Covid-safe procedures that were in place Sept-Nov 2020.
If the government’s ‘roadmap’ goes to plan we intend to reopen fully on June 21st.
We are currently taking bookings from ‘regular’ users (new or existing). There is currently a moratorium on parties etc and ‘one-off bookings’ will be considered on their merits but will not be accepted necessarily. This policy will be kept under review by Trustees and any changes will be posted on this website.
