Fire Exit Doors 

During Covid restrictions we removed the alarms for the fire exit doors to make it safer for everyone to avoid unnecessary contact with others whilst walking through the building. We have kept this in place ever since. However, this has had an impact on how we operate our centres and has made it difficult for our staff to operate effectively. Therefore, we will be arming all fire exit doors with an alarm again from Monday 23rd May. Please make sure you use the main entrance and exit to enter and leave the building.
