4 September 2023

On Monday 4th September, we identified a part of our building that could contain RAAC concrete based on BBC News reports regarding the current building issues in schools. This combined with the 1960s build date and the fact we are an old school raised alarm in our team. On closer inspection we noticed a crack in part of the concrete.

We made the immediate decision to close the majority of the premises until a review by a professional can be made.

Until that time, our Community Desk, including all Paypoint, YODEL and Stasher transactions will take place at the Theatre Entrance. Citizens Advice and Blueberry Academy are unaffected.

At this time, YMCA Theatre is open for productions and Twilight’s production is going ahead as planned.

All other activities are to be considered cancelled at this moment until we get further updates. I know that some of our users such as PDC have found alternative venues, please contact your dance school or company for further information.
