It is with immense sadness, following the announcement of a new national lockdown starting today, the LOLCIO Trustees have taken the very difficult decision to once again close Levenshulme Old Library to groups meeting in the building for the 4-week period of lockdown. ALLFm have also suspended their live shows, but as before will continue broadcasting using pre-recorded programmes.
Whilst we know many of our user groups are only just re-starting this week, that guidance is still being developed and open to interpretation, and this will be a great disappointment, on balance it was felt that the lockdown is in place to protect people and that we should act responsibly by supporting that intention for the well-being of the community of Levenshulme.
The Trustees will continue to review the position as the situation evolves, but for now we are working towards re-opening in early December. During these four weeks we will continue to work to ensure that the building is at the best possible standard for groups returning, guidelines permitting, from the 3rd December 2020.
Please get in touch if you need any further information.
