The Civic Hall joins forces with health professionals to help the town & community
Published on Wednesday, 16th September 2020
Health experts from Bedworth Health Centre are on hand at the High Street venue on Mondays during September to carry out essential 'flu vaccinations.
The injections are carried out on an appointment basis to patients who have been referred by their doctor and several hundred people have already used the service, which will be extended next month, with times yet to be confirmed.
The service forms part of a nationwide initiative to ensure as many eligible people as possible have a ‘flu jab.
Cllr Ian Lloyd, Portfolio Holder for Arts and Leisure said:
“We are proud that in the absence of shows taking place due to the Covid-19 Pandemic that we can utilise The Civic Hall for this essential service.
“The building is a focal point for the Borough and we are pleased to be able to use its auditorium for the vaccinations and we hope as many people as possible will be referred for an injection.
“We also hope to be able to open the building for shows as soon as it is safe to do so for artistes, audiences and staff.’’
The Covid-19 Pandemic has seen many of the shows scheduled to take place during 2020 rescheduled until next year. This includes Jimmy Carr, Jim Davidson, Talon, That’ll Be The Day and The Elvis Years.
However, this year’s United Kingdom Drug Free Bodybuilding Association’s UK International Championships are still being held during the weekend of Saturday, October 17.
This will take place adhering to social distancing guidelines and spectators will not be allowed in the building.
The High Street Coffee bar is open from 10am until 2pm, Tuesdays to Fridays, and the Box Office phone lines are open from 10am until 4pm, with full details of shows and ticket sales available at www.civichallinbedworth.co.uk
