Dear Miners’ Centre friends and visitors,
We are still here for you, through lockdown and beyond!
We are working hard to ensure as many activities as possible can continue while keeping us all safe. While most activities that had started again will continue to be delivered at the Centre, some will now be delivered online. We have put more information on the ‘Programme of activities' page with details of classes and activities that are continuing throughout September, and how they will be delivered (online, hybrid, at the Centre etc).
For information the latest Welsh Government guidance is:
For those residents of Caerphilly County Borough who were shielding prior to 16th of August and therefore remain on the Shielding Patient List, there is no change to the advice from the Chief Medical Officer for Wales and we are not reintroducing shielding at this time. We will continue to monitor this position carefully and will write directly to people on the list in this area if this changes.
In the meantime those who were previously shielding should consider the advice they have already been given on how to keep safe;
- Keep contacts outside the household to a minimum and avoid all situations either inside or outside where you are not able to maintain a physical distance of 2m from those outside your household.
- Utilise priority shopping slots for supermarkets or shop at quieter times of day
- Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water regularly and use hand sanitiser where hand washing facilities are not available
- Avoid touching surfaces that have been touched by others.
We will be launching a new website next week, which will make it easier for you to book online. If you experience problems accessing us online, it may be due to the transition. We appreciate your patience with this.
For now you can access the latest information on activities here
If you would like more information about the Miners' Centre, please get in touch.
We will get through this together!
The Beeches was originally a mansion owned by a wealthy mining contractor, but in a remarkable endeavor it was bought by mine workers from 29 local pits using money collected via weekly contributions from their wages. It was bought in 1919 and they converted the mansion into a hospital and ‘The Miners’ as it became affectionately known went on to serve the healthcare needs of local people for nearly 90 years.
