Covid-Secure

This has been a trying time and we understand that organisers and delegates may feel uneasy about the return to public spaces and how these areas are managed. It is the responsibility of all of us to act in a covid-secure way. Please rest assured that we are taking our Covid-19 response seriously and working hard to support our organisers in managing physical distancing, providing hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities and sharing risk assessments.

At present (30th July 2020) we can support meetings and events for up to 30 delegates including organisers. Our Fielder Centre is operating under 2m physical distancing unless organisers and the venue can agree a sufficient 1m+ distancing risk assessment plan. This 30-person limit will be in place until government guidance changes.

To discuss the covid-security of your event please get in touch with us today.
