Council Closure

In line with government measures allowing the re-opening of community centres and other multi-use community facilities, Horwich Community Centre has re-opened with reduced hours and in line with core public health guidance regarding health, hygiene and social distancing and safe workplace guidelines to ensure that it is safe for those employees who are unable to work from home to return to work.

In line with public health advice the Town Council Office will re-open on 7 July with reduced hours (Tues and Weds 10am – 4pm) with staff working from home outside these times and council meetings continuing to be held remotely.

As public access into the Centre will be restricted, the preferred method of contact will continue to be by either emailing townclerk@horwich.gov.uk or by leaving a voicemail message on 01204 691090.

In-person meetings are by appointment only with social distancing in place. All measures will be reviewed regularly.
