COVID UPDATE

I am happy to say we have now run a number of residentials with great success and are now looking to the future with great optimism for less restrictions on the 19th July.

We are not anticipating any movement in the way we are currently operating so we expect all our COVID measures will remain in place for the majority of 2021. None of the policies or procedures we have in place are impacting the experience and our clients have fed back that it feels no different to how it did before.

A massive THANK YOU for everybody’s patients and resilience regarding bookings. The loyalty and commitment shown to make the trips happen has been a real comfort to all those of us working hard to keep the centre running and safe for all.
