How is Broad Street Hall ensuring my safety?
    The safety of our staff, volunteers, hall users and visitors are our number one priority. We have reviewed our processes and procedures and have implemented several measures to ensure we can open safely. These measures are listed below, but government guidance can and may change, meaning our safety measures may change too; • We have reduced our group/hall user capacity in line with social distancing requirements, this may result in smaller group numbers and some groups, activities or services not being available • Face coverings are currently compulsory, We encourage hall users and visitors to wear face coverings where possible; when moving throughout the building • We have plenty of hand washing facilities, including sinks and hand sanitiser at the entrance and in the main rooms. • We have an increased cleaning schedule which seeks to disinfect highfrequency touch points, such as tables and chairs, taps, handles, lift buttons and handrails • In our toilet facilities, we ask our hall users and visitors to follow social distancing, and if cubicles are engaged please queue outside. We ask hall users and visitors to remember to wash hands before and after using our toilet facilities. If you need to pass another person whilst entering or exiting, in line with government guidance, we ask that you turn your back to them as you walk past. Our staff and volunteers will regularly check toilet facilities, ensuring they are clean and soap dispensers are full. • We ask that we all work together to follow social distancing guidance. Hall users and visitors who persistently disregard social distancing guidelines will be asked to leave. • If you lip read, please let our staff know so that we remove face masks for you • We ask that any children in your group are supervised to ensure they can follow social distancing guidelines. • Staff and volunteers have been trained on the implementation of new safety measures, ensuring we are compliant with government guidelines for opening safely. Please pay attention to instructions provided by our staff or volunteers. We may put extra temporary measures in place to safeguard you. • If you are not feeling well with either one or more of the symptoms of Covid19, please do not use Broad Street Hall. Stay at home and follow government and NHS 111 advice. We will be here to welcome you back when you feel better.
