Day Centre Re-opens

7 March at 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Headway North Cumbria will re-open its Day Centre on Monday 7 March 2022.  The venue will be the New Waterton Hall and timings will be 13:30 – 15:00 – as they were at the end of 2021.  

The Day Centre will run on a weekly basis thereafter, except on Bank Holidays.

The intent is to start with a limited range of activities on offer, with a view to gradually building up to the offering of pre-COVID levels after Easter.  This is subject to having sufficient volunteers to organise and facilitate activities.  In particular the following should be noted:

–   No crafts on 7 March 2022, though dominoes will be offered.  7 March will be used to discuss intentions with members and to establish their ideas regarding the way ahead for the Day Centre.

–   Crafts will resume on 14 March 2022.

–   The Annual General Meeting will be held on 21 March 2022.

–   Table tennis / pool table will be introduced, as required, and on demand.

–   Cooking will resume on 25 April 2022 – after the Easter Break.


Members will be aware that, in England, the Government has removed legal restrictions regarding COVID-19 and replaced them with guidance on how to live with COVID-19.  With this in mind we offer the following advice to volunteers, members and carers attending the Day Centre:

 –   test regularly and ideally take a Lateral Flow Test (whilst they are still available free of charge) before attending the Day Centre. 

–   do not attend the Day Centre if you test positive for COVID-19 and/or have symptoms. 

–   ensure that you have been vaccinated.

–   wear a face mask and social distance (where practicable) when you come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

–   wash and/or sanitise your hands regularly.
