Bell View have a leaflets that need delivering with services that they are offering through these difficult times. Would the volunteers who deliver the newsletter be available to do this? If you can could you please collect them from Bell View after 12pm on Friday, they will also need to be collect back a couple of days later. The community shop has a list of volunteers but no contact details hence the request. If you are unable to do this please email us name and delivery area so we can arrange for someone to cover.
Thank you to everyone in advance.
Belford Community shop has made the difficult decision to close the shop until further notice. The majority of our volunteers are either over 70 or have under lying health issue so we do not wish to put them or our customers at risk. We are sure you will all understand and we will keep you up dated.
Belford Museum will also be closed until further notice.
News letter volunteers please be advised that next month’s Newsletters can be collected from Newsagents in high street.
Belford Community Group regrets that we have to cancel the community markets due to begin again in May. We will review the situation regarding the July market’s near the time. Thank you for your understanding
According to the government guidelines just announced the Belford Community Gym will be closed until further notice from midnight tonight. Although the gym is not a professional set up it is still at risk due to the handling of equipment by multiple users with no guarantee that all surfaces are being wiped down following being used.
All members will have their memberships extended to provide whatever time they currently have remaining from the day we are able to reopen. In other words, if you have 2 months remaining you will still have 2 months when we open again.
We understand this is disruptive for those who use the gym on a regular basis but safety of our members and Belford residents is our priority at this time.
A Note from Belford Medical Practice.
We will try to keep these lists as up to date as possible, but please if you have anymore information just let us know. Thank you
