We are pleased to announce that all procedures are in place for reopening our Centre from Tuesday 4th May 2021.

Until further notice, access will be by appointment only.  An appointment lasts for up to 2½ hours, between 10:15am and 12:45pm Monday to Saturday or between 1:15pm and 3:45pm Monday to Friday.  To reserve a slot, please telephone the Society on 01224 646323 between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday or between 10am and 1pm Saturday.

All users of our Centre must bring and wear a face-covering.

Staff can fetch other materials for you. For our remote members, it may also be possible to book a slot for a video consultation with a volunteer (e.g. using Zoom or Google Meet).
