COVID-19: the Methodist Church updated its guidance on July 28th ( but the Methodist Circuit has advised us not to open our  Chapel & Community Centre for services of worship or mid-week activities yet. In the meantime the Property Steward has been issued with guidance on risk assessments and the necessary cleaning before re-opening.

The nearby Lumsdale Valley is also closed: see ‘Community News’ for more details.

May you stay well during these challenging times.
