Keeping Markfield COVID-secure

All our clubs, play sessions and support groups are running at Markfield from 14th September

We have taken steps to adapt our services to respond to covid-19, and have put in place a range of safety measures to reduce the risks of virus transmission and to ensure we comply with government guidance. These safety measures include:

– holding our sessions outdoors as far as possible in our large garden & playground

– limiting the number of people gathering within any area in the centre

UPDATE: from 14th September to comply with the new guidance, clubs that are larger than six members will be divided into separate groups to use different spaces within the centre

– asking people NOT to come to the centre if they have any covid-19 symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive

– asking everyone to wash their hands (or use sanitiser) upon entering the building

– asking visitors and staff to wear masks or visors (where possible) whilst in shared areas  and to observe social distancing

– extra cleaning before each session

Online booking in advance for play sessions and support groups:
For our Saturday children’s play sessions , our Under 5s stay and play , and parent support groups you will need to book your place online in advance to attend, as places are limited

We are offering a mixture of advice appointments – by telephone and video conference as well as face-to-face.  We are running most of our training courses online, with some courses at the centre – with limited numbers to ensure social distancing.

We will be constantly reviewing our practice in the light of government guidance. We ask your support to comply with the guidance and we will respond to your feedback – to ensure Markfield stays accessible and covid-secure for all visitors

Markfield playground fire update – we are open again from Wednesday 27th May

Following the devastating fire last Friday we have had a specialist demolition team in to demolish the burnt play structures, fence off the affected areas and make the rest of the playground safe, and a volunteer team in today to help with the clear up of the site.

Thanks to all their hard work the playground has now been signed off as safe to re-open for our ‘one-family-at-a-time’ play sessions for disabled children – so we are expecting to re-start these from Wednesday.

Help us with the re-build

Our crowdfunder to pay towards the costs of the playground re-build is doing well – thanks so much to everyone who has donated and sent messages of support.
