Civic Centre to re-open on Monday

The Civic Centre Uckfield is set to re-open on Monday 6 July in full compliance with the government guidance.

Customers wishing to recommence their bookings or look ahead to later in the year, please contact admin@uckfieldtc.gov.uk or 01825 762774.

In order to manage the risk of Covid-19 and to make the Civic Centre a place where you feel safe we have:
• carried out risk assessments for our room hirers, our staff and restaurant
• cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures in place for our toilets and key touch points around the building
• reassessed the numbers we can take in each room for bookings to ensure our customers can maintain a safe distance – see our website for full details at https://www.civiccentreuckfield.com/room-hire/
• hand sanitiser stations and added screens at both our caretaker and office counters
• introduced a one-way system within the Civic Centre with clear access through our corridors to reduce touch points and risk of contact
• reduced the number of Town Council staff working in the office at any one time
• procedures in place to monitor the temperature of our staff on a daily basis as they enter the building.

Plans are also being put in place for the re-opening of Luxfords Restaurant at the Civic Centre and more information on that will follow shortly.

Advise to hirers:

  • There is a one way system throughout the building, starting at the front entrance, with the exit through the fire exit at the side of the building.
  • Hand sanitiser stations are set up at the following points – front entrance, ground floor toilets, first floor toilets, council office.
  • Currently the ground floor disabled toilet will be priority use for room hirers over general public. The queuing system proceeds down the corridor towards the Green room.

  • Toilets and frequent touch points are disinfected regularly.
  • All Council staff have been provided PPE, with minimum numbers working in the building.
