Centre currently closed
Under current restrictions, although the Centre is allowed to be open, almost all our meetings are not permitted! There is therefore little point in being open. It does however allow us the opportunity to press on with the conversion of our former library space into an exciting new facility. More news here soon!
Lyndhurst Community Centre will be open again and taking bookings, we hope, in safe, airy and clean venue. All rooms can operate in socially distanced setups with ample ventilation and frequent cleaning of all hard surfaces, door handles, toilets etc.
Contact us to enquire about a booking for your group or event.
COMMUNITY CENTRE NEWS
The community centre is unfortunately closed again due to higher tier restrictions. When we re-open we will in place all the practical things that need to be done in order to welcome people back with the minimum of risk such as deep cleaning all rooms, using screening at the reception desk, directional barriers and floor stickers, sanitizer stations and a one- in, one-out system for the toilets.
We operate a thorough risk assessment and protection regime. Please check our Covid Statement for full details: Covid Statement

Read What's On Magazine online
We have resumed distribution of 'What's On' magazine to homes in the Lyndhurst, Emery Down and Bank area area. However we also continuing to make it available only.
You can view the full colour 48 page magazine here: view "What's On-line"
We would like to express a big thank-you to our advertisers who have supported us through the past months. We are also grateful to our volunteer What's On deliverers who have taken to the streets to deliver this month's edition.
Our table tennis sessions normally operate on Friday afternoons and Monday evenings, led by Lotty and Malcolm Holmes.
However, due to new guidelines from Table Tennis England, currently new restrictions are in place which restrict table tennis to being played with someone from one other household only.
Therefore, table tennis sessions have had to be suspended at the community centre until this guidance changes and our previous policy of safe ‘bubble of six’ play can resume.
Please check back for further updates. Thank you for supporting these sessions during 2020 and we hope to welcome you back soon in 2021.

Lyndhurst & District Community Association – Annual General Meeting
The AGM was postponed due to lockdown. When restrictions are lifted so that we are in a position to hold a meeting we will set a new date. We are intending to hold a combined 2 year AGM covering the past 2 years.
Films and Music
Films will resume as we are allowed to show them!
Following the success of our October “Trial Return of Film Night", which was very well received by all, we planned to show in November the film, “The Good Liar,” first scheduled for May. Unfortunately, this film has had to be cancelled for a second time to comply with government regulations.
On a more positive note, we look forward, hopefully, to welcoming you to our February screening, but in the meantime your ideas for future films will be most welcome. Please email the details to: email@example.com
