IMPORTANT INFORMATION – TEMPORARY dsc closure
Dear Donald Simpson Centre Member
At this time, the DSC has been advised of no active cases of coronavirus (Covid 19) related to the Centre.
After consideration of available advice on the current Covid-19 virus, it has with regret been decided to close the Donald Simpson Community Centre for an initial period of one month from the close of business on Monday 16 March to reopen tentatively on Tuesday 14 April. This decision will be reviewed regularly and a further email will advise on any change to this reopening date for the Centre.
The best interest of members and visitors whom we are continually reminded are in the most vulnerable age range was the foremost of our reasons for this closure. Best results have been obtained in similar circumstances by taking proactive action instead of waiting for positive cases to force us to close.
All our trips are cancelled till the end of April, and once again subject to review.
Refunds, for events and bus trips, will be organised to all in the coming weeks.
Cafe will currently operate only for TAKEAWAYS.
We can be contacted via phone during business hours as normal, and via email for any queries.
We urge you to maintain your caution in trying to avoid contamination by this virus.
