Further to our previous statement, this is to advise that as of Friday 20th March the Lymington Community Centre will be temporarily closed until further notice.

We are taking this action in response to the announcement that members of the public should avoid theatres, clubs, pubs and restaurants and in consideration for the health and wellbeing of the Community, our staff, volunteers.   This is a very difficult decision to make, but it is a necessary one.

The Centre will remain closed until at least Monday 20th April 2020, subject to Government Guidelines.  We will keep you updated with any new information via our website and notices.

We intend to keep the offices operational for answering emails and telephone calls if we can staff the office.  Our intended opening times will be Monday – Friday 9.00 – 5.00pm throughout the closure.

It is impossible to realise the full impact the coronavirus will have on the Lymington Community Centre as a whole.  If you are a cinema ticket holder, we will be contacting you in the coming weeks regarding the status of your transaction. You do not need to contact us. If your event remains postponed or cancelled, we’ll discuss whether you’d like to support us by donating your tickets to our Celebrating 70 Development Fund. Alternatively, we may ask if you’d like to convert your tickets into a gift voucher to use at another time. With a reduced number of staffing, it may take us some time to contact you so please do bear with us.

As a very busy Community Centre, it is difficult to make this announcement, but right now, under these extraordinary circumstances, we feel it is the right action to take.

We look forward to when the risk of the virus has abated and when we can open the doors of the Community Centre again and we will let you know when we have any more news.   Until then, we remain grateful for everyone’s support, patience and understanding. For updates and news, please visit our web site, or connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
