Instruction from Girlguiding to suspend unit meetings also applies to residential centres; therefore the Jarman Centre is closed until further notice.
We have been keeping bookings in place so that once the situation changes groups will still have their slot. The County Trustees had already agreed that groups should not suffer financial loss through no fault of their own so existing deposits have been returned (minus an admin fee) on a rolling monthly basis until such time as we are able to reopen.
We are still allowing groups to make future bookings but we are not taking deposits until we can reopen safely.
We are grateful to have received Government grants during the pandemic to help with essential maintenance and to continue to employ our caretaker while we have been closed during lockdown periods.
If you would like to support the Jarman Centre at this difficult time you could join our 50/50 lottery, the Friends of the Jarman Centre or make a donation. The forms are here
