The Stowford Centre
A Covid-19 Secure Community Centre

The Stowford Centre is now open for classes after the Government has eased the lock down regulations.
Although Devon is in tier 2 the restrictions allow us to open:

Organised indoor sport, physical activity and exercise classes will only be permitted if it is possible for people to avoid mixing with people they do not live with (or share a support bubble with). There are exceptions for indoor disability sport, sport for educational purposes and supervised sport and physical activity for under-18s, which can take place with larger groups mixing 

As directors of the Stowford Community Centre, we are keen to see people using this excellent facility again.

We understand that some restrictions apply and although we welcome you all back with open arms however you, as hirers, need to mitigate the risks for your classes or lectures. The Centre does not have the resources to do this for you!

Please Note. The Café area and Kitchen are closed until lock-down restrictions are lifted.

Although though the Lock-down the hall has been closed for hirers, the Centre has been open and used by Sid Valley Radio throughout the lock-down and as such the water has been run daily, along with the toilet facilities.

The Centre has also been used by the NHS for blood donations every month so it has been used. We are also getting the water heaters and supply checked in the next few days to confirm everything is as clean as expected. Also, the Centre has been regularly cleaned as part of the normal services and deep cleaned after the NHS blood donation team has visited.
