Users of the Community Hubs in North Solihull
Following recent Government advice relating to the coronavirus outbreak we have taken the difficult decision to close the five community hubs we manage from 19 March 2020 until further notice. The hubs are those at: Bishop Wilson School, Coleshill Heath School, Elmwood Place, Fordbridge School and Capitol House at Yorkswood School.
We take seriously the safety of our users and feel this is a sensible course of action under the circumstances. Already, organisations are making the decision to withdraw their bookings and it makes sense to take action ourselves and help people avoid social gatherings and meetings. I am sorry how this might affect some people where activities they rely upon are withdrawn, but unfortunately there is no real alternative to the situation. As soon a things change, I will contact you again. In the meantime stay safe and I look forward to when we can all get back to normal and this terrible situation is over.
