Face masks are back!

As per Government guidance, face masks must be worn in Seacourt Hall unless an individual has an exemption. They are not required by people taking part in exercise, dancing or, in some cases, singing. Good hygiene practices, i.e., regular hand washing with sanitiser or soap and water, and, where practical, social distancing remain essential. We appreciate your ongoing support.
