Coronavirus update: Bellfield closed as a lettable space until further notice
After consultation with hirers and users, Action Porty have closed Bellfield as a lettable space until further notice.
We have tried to do this in a way that is sensitive to the needs of our users and the wider community.
We will be keeping the situation under review. We hope to be taking bookings for events and classes that begin after June, but we will obviously have to respond to the evolving situation. Please do feel free to keep in touch with us on email@example.com.
We are actively exploring ways of helping the community during this difficult time. Any suggestions for how we can do this would be really welcome.
The Action Porty board will have further discussions on the financial position of the organisation during the closure, and the role of Action Porty within the community response to the virus.
On a happier note, we’d like to thank local lad, Kharim Mather (8 years old, P3) who made the wonderful model of Bellfield in our cover photo as part of his Towerbank Primary School home work. Here he is handing it over a few days ago. We think it is fantastic and look forward to displaying the work for all to see when Bellfield reopens.
Let’s all do what we can to help our community stay safe and well.
The Action Porty team
