Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the surge in cases in recent weeks, we have had to put some safety protocols in place to ensure all those who are attending, including many who are classified as vulnerable, are kept safe.
Hence we would appreciate if the following guidelines can be followed by all those who attend the puja this year.
Please do not come to the venue if you are experiencing any COVID or flu-like symptoms (these can include cough, high temperature, loss of taste/smell etc)
All attendees aged 18+ must be double vaccinated and have also taken the booster vaccine if eligible
All attendees aged 8+ (including those who are vaccinated) must show proof of Lateral Flow Test (LFT) carried out within 24 hours of attending. Proof of negative test will be checked at entrance.

Face coverings must be worn by all those in attendance unless medically exempt. Masks can only be taken off for drinking and eating.
A limited number of disposable masks will be available to purchase at the entrance (50 pence each)
Hands must be sanitised before entering the premises. There will be hand sanitiser available at the entrance.
School-aged children will not be allowed to run around any part of the premises and they must be kept close to their guardians at all times
