During the course of the pandemic, Active Medlock has hosted adult social care services for the most vulnerable people within the community.
The vulnerability of the clients, in combination with social distancing requirements, has meant that Active Medlock has operated as a hybrid centre, i.e. not open to the general public when adult social care services are being provided.
It is the case therefore that only when social distancing requirements in social care settings are fully lifted, will consideration be given to the potential for a return to pre-pandemic opening hours at Active Medlock.
The lockdown road map indicates that Stage Four, which incorporates the lifting of all legal limits on social contact, will not occur until June 21st at the earliest and at this point operations at Active Medlock will be fully reviewed.
We completely understand the frustrations of our loyal customers and share the aspiration for a return to ‘normality’.
In the meantime, we ask you once again for your forbearance.
The Active Tameside Team
Yesterday, the Prime Minister appeared before the House of Commons to unveil the Government’s ‘cautious’ four step plan to lift the Coronavirus lockdown with the primary focus being ‘data not dates’ thereby implying potential fluidity.
In terms of our products and services, I’ve outlined the key elements below:
April 12th at the earliest
May 17th at the earliest
We, like our loyal customers are desperate to return to some semblance of pre-COVID normality though the pandemic has undoubtedly changed some of the things we do irrevocably, often however, in a positive way such as the functionality of our app.
Nevertheless, like the majority of similar charitable operations within the sector, we now face acute financial challenges. To this end and in collaboration with the Council, we are running a consultation exercise around the future provision of leisure services in Tameside.
The exercise will inform decisions in relation to a number of Active Tameside centres and provide valuable feedback for the ongoing evolution of the charity as a viable force for good within the borough – please complete the survey via the link below:
Finally, I want to thank each and every one of you for sticking with us during these incredibly uncertain times – the last eleven months have been challenging for staff and customers alike as we’ve closed and opened and closed again, with a myriad of frustrations around reduced capacity in particular.
For the most part though, it really has felt like we’re all in it together and together we’ll emerge stronger and even more resilient.
We’ll continue to update you as further details emerge.
