COVID -19 ongoing situation January 2021
Beeston Community Resource CIO
We’d like to begin by wishing everybody a happy new year and prosperous 2021.
Regrettably, the new year has not begun quite as we hoped. On the 6th of January, England commenced a new period of government mandated national restrictions to prevent the continued spread and rise of Covid-19 infection.
We want everybody who attends MSRC to feel safe and be safe. Due to the current risk of infection in the U.K, to maintain a safe service, it is with regret and heavy heart that we feel the appropriate action is to suspend our MindSet groups and commercial room hire groups until further notice.
We understand this could be a particularly challenging period for people. Our phone lines will continue to be open 10am – 3pm, Monday to Friday, and our mental health workers will be available to speak with people during these hours. Our phone number is 0115 9252516.
Our meal delivery service will still be available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. For logistical reasons, there will be a limit on how far and how many meals we can deliver. If you would like to receive a meal from us, please contact us between 10am and 11am on the day of delivery, also on 0115 9252516.
The rollout of a vaccine for Covid-19 offers a ray of hope that we can return to offering our usual face to face service sooner rather than later. The vaccination is free of charge through the NHS.
Please remember, anybody trying to take payment, or asking for your bank details, in relation to the vaccine, is NOT legitimate.
We encourage you to keep in touch with us throughout this period.
We hope to see you all again soon, and we wish you all the best for 2021 and beyond
Thanks for your support
The staff and trustees of Middle Street Resource Centre
