The UK Government has announced that it will call on people over 70 to self-isolate for four months in the coming weeks. The majority of the users of our Elderly Lunch Club, Table Tennis Club, Karaoke, Mah-Jong and Card games are elderly people over the age of 70.
Therefore, our Centre has decided to temporary suspend all group activities to reduce the risk of infection with COVID-19. Our Health Advocacy Services and Advisory Services will only be operated by telephone with immediate effect. The above measures will be implemented until the end of April, they will be reviewed in the light of the Government’s guidelines.
The Annual General Meeting of our Association, which was scheduled for 25th March 2020, will be postponed until further notice.
During this period, we ask all our members to contact their families and neighbours more regularly and increase the number of contacts amongst members. The staff of this Centre will also make hospitality telephone calls to members.
Members are reminded to wash their hands more often and pay attention to personal hygiene.
