OCTOBER, 2020

 

The Fromus Centre has Re-opened for Community Use!

 

The Fromus Centre in Seaman Avenue, Saxmundham has now reopened its doors to the community.

The latest Government guidance on “the safe use of multi-purpose community facilities” has been updated since the introduction of “the rule of 6”. It states: “Community facilities following COVID-19 secure guidelines can host more than 6 people in total, but no one should visit or socialise in a group of greater than 6”. So the Fromus Centre will now be  limited to groups of up to 20 in the Main Hall.

A full risk assessment has been drawn up and new procedures are in place for health and safety purposes.

The hall and smaller rooms offer an ideal environment for various activities and local voluntary groups benefit from hire rates starting at only £6 per hour.

With plenty of onsite parking and free Wi-Fi, The Fromus Centre offers ideal community facilities.

The Fromus Centre is managed by the 5 volunteer directors of The Saxmundham & District Community Interest Company (SADCIC).

“Throughout the ‘Covid 19 close down’ The Fromus Centre remained open for NHS services and we were extremely pleased to be able to offer the NHS expanded Midwifery services and clinics as alternative premises in the area became unavailable. We are now busy working with Suffolk County Council and others to bring about an exciting move to a brand new Fromus Centre as part of the refurbishment works currently taking place to the County Buildings in Street Farm Road, Saxmundham. Our move is expected to take place early in the New Year and more details will be published nearer the time." Steve Palmer, Chair of SADCIC:
