Following the  recent announcement that Essex is moving into tier 2 high alert, please note the following:-

Only people from the same household or support bubble are able to sit together at each table.

We are now operating a table service only in our bar/tea bar. Please do not approach the bar, stay seated and someone will come to you.

It is now compulsory for everyone to wear face masks (including staff) except when drinking at the table. Masks must be worn at all other times.

Non-compliance with these new regulations will result in a £10,000 fine for us, therefore please stick to the rules and help us to keep everyone safe.

It is mandatory for us to collect contact details from anyone who comes in to the centre. If you have the new NHS COVID 19 app, you can scan yourself in with the QR code that is displayed by the front doors. If not, please fill in a form that will be on your table.

Please be patient with us.

Thank you for your support and stay safe.
