Attending an Event at the Buddhist Centre

We are delighted to be welcoming people back to the Buddhist Centre but we’ll be doing things differently to keep everyone as safe as possible, with social distancing, enhanced hygiene and other new arrangements.

  • You need to book online for every event you want to come to – places are limited so we can keep our distance. You’ll be asked for contact details – to be kept for a few weeks so we can contact you if someone at your class develops COVID-19.
  • Do not attend an event (even if you’ve booked) if you have COVID-19 symptoms or you’ve been in contact with someone who has t
  • Stay 2 metres from others at all times, refrain from hugging and use the hand sanitiser provided.
  • Wear a face covering (unless you are exempt from doing so) on entry (Government rules require face coverings to be worn throughout places of worship). We’ll have face masks available for those who don’t have one, but if you can bring your own that will save our resources.
  • All events will be in our larger rooms already set up with mat, chair and cushion in each place 2 metres apart. Please bring a blanket if you want to use one.
  • The café area is closed – please bring a bottle of soft drink if you want to.
  • Toilets will be open for use (though fewer than usual). Where possible please use the toilet at home to reduce demand.
  • Please arrive between 15 and 5 minutes before the class – and go straight into your room on arrival.
  • Our classes continue to run on a donation basis. To reduce contact with cash please consider making a donation online.
  • The Library is closed but the Bookshop will be open for the class.
