Memorial Hall to open as a Vaccination Centre

The trustees of the Memorial Hall, Pateley Bridge have been working closely with local pharmacist, Samina Khan and Dr Lewis Caplin to get NHS approval to use the Memorial Hall in Park Road, Pateley Bridge as a vaccination centre. Following a virtual inspection last week, approval has been given to open the Hall in early April for the administration of the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccination. Actual opening days will depend on vaccine supplies. In the meantime, essential IT and refrigeration equipment will be installed in the coming week. Chairman of the Hall's trustees, Chris Henderson said that they were delighted that the Hall would be put to good use while it was closed for its usual activities. He added that, thanks to generous Government support, the Hall is financially secure and essential maintenance and safety inspections had been carried out, as well as protective heating, throughout the winter which will enable the Hall to open safely when allowed to do so.
