Community buildings in our local places are vitally important hubs for our communities. They are places which support people’s physical and mental wellbeing, as well as being welcoming spaces that connect people and organisations. The re-opening of these buildings in a safe and practical way is a key part of our recovery from the coronavirus outbreak.
On Tuesday 8th September at 6.30pm, Kirklees Council are hosting a second webinar to provide guidance on how to safely re-open your community building. We will also be sharing and discussing some more of the lessons we’ve learnt from community buildings that have already opened in local places across Kirklees.
If you have questions that you would like answering at this webinar then please send them through before Tuesday 8th September. Even if you can’t make the session, please still send your questions through as it will be possible to watch the recorded session on YouTube after the event. Please email your questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The webinar panel will include:
- Joanne Bartholomew, Chief Operating Officer, Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing – Chair of the meeting.
- Donna Roberts, Lead Infection & Prevention Control Nurse, Kirklees Council
- Emily Parry-Harries, Head of Public Health, Kirklees Council
- Jaime Nalson, Venue Management, Kirklees Council
- Jane O’Donnell, Head of Health Protection, Kirklees Council
- Jill Greenfield, Director of Customers and Communities, Kirklees Council
- Jonathan Quarmby, Facilities Manager, Kirklees Council
- Lisa Newbold, Community Services Manager, Local Service 2 You, Chestnut Centre (To be confirmed)
There will also be an opportunity for you to ask questions to the panel via the YouTube chat system during the session, but it would be great if you can share your questions in advance so that we can do our best to help.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Message from Joanne Bartholomew, 9th September 2020
Shortly after this session, the government made an announcement which we were not aware of in advance. It’s likely that this will change some of the points discussed in our webinar. It will take a few days for us to digest the information in the guidance when it is released. When it does and we have got our heads around it we will update the information on this page.
Our blog post from 14th July 2020 includes the YouTube footage of what happened at the first webinar and links to Kirklees Council and Government guidance on community buildings at that time:
