Covid-19 (coronavirus) was the major topic discussed at Tuesday evening’s Maldon Neighbourhood Centre (MNC) Committee of Management meeting.  The Committee focused on developing a proactive approach in order to protect the vulnerable members of our community.

The health and safety of our staff, volunteers and the Maldon community is paramount.

Of course MNC continues to comply with all government directives in relation to Covid-19 however it has become necessary to make some difficult decisions to support the recommended principles of infection control such as social distancing.

This will impact on a number of activities previously scheduled to take place over the coming weeks.  Details will be outlined in the upcoming MNC newsletter which will be distributed shortly as well as on the Centre’s website Please note that the working bee arranged for 21st March (Saturday) will be rescheduled for later in the year.

Based on current advice from the relevant government authorities Occasional Child Care, Community Transport Service and the Maldon Market will continue with enhanced hygiene procedures in place.  As Government advice changes we will respond accordingly.

Pam Millwood, Deputy Chair expressed the Centre’s deep regret at the necessity of these measures but stressed that the Centre has the health and well-being of our community at heart.

MNC Coordinator Amy Atkinson said “It would be lovely to see kindness go viral in Maldon during this time.  Look out for neighbours and those around you who may need a little extra support at this time. “
