Covid-19 Changes

From July 19th the Covid-19 regulations and guidance change again. We are taking a cautious approach at Fenton’s.

At Cafe@Fenton’s we are asking people to continue to wear a face mask – if you are able to – while walking inside the building, going to the toilets etc. The track and trace book and QR codes and hand sanitiser will still be there in case you should want to use them. While seated to eat or drink, and outside, you do not need to wear a mask of course. Our staff serving you will not be wearing a mask but, if you are at all uncomfortable about this, they are perfectly happy for you to ask them to wear a mask while serving you at the counter.

Also, if you have been wanting to join one of our sports hall classes – but they have been full up – contact your class organiser to see if they now have more places available.


Fenton’s Community Centre – Help us with our grounds?

Could you lend us a hand with weeding at Fenton’s? What with the pandemic and that cold spring we’ve not been able to do as much gardening as we’d like recently. But now at we’ve had some warm weather we could really do with a hand with the weeds that have sprung up in the borders and paths. Socially distanced of course!

If you are interested in helping us do get in touch by email, text or phone.

I can meet you there by arrangement or come along Wednesday 14 July anytime between 10 am and 12 pm to join in. We’ll stand you a drink from Cafe@Fenton’s indoor or outdoor seating or takeaway.

We’ll be able to make some tools available but by all means bring your own and we’ll dispose of the weeds. Just turn up, or let me know beforehand, whichever suits you.
