The Bridge Business Centre Closure

Unfortunately we have had to temporarily close the Bridge business centre as a result of the school closure and in line with Government guidance to reduce the spread of COVID 19. The academy has to limit the number of essential people in the school to protect the children of keyworkers and other local children who still need to attend school. We did try to find members who requested help alternative options to work from, but unfortunately weren’t successful.

 

Members will not be asked to pay any membership fees during the closure and we will contact members as soon as we know that we are able to open the facility again.
