The basement at Bridge House was flooded over the holidays and the electric supply and the heating was damaged. Currently we do have an electric supply to the centre itself but there is no lighting on the stairwell or in the toilets and the lift is out of action. The heating isn’t working either so the building is very cold indeed.
As a consequence – and from both a comfort and safety perspective – the trustees feel that the centre is not in a safe or usable state and all classes at the start of next week are cancelled.
*The Landlord is hopeful that all utilities will be restored by Wednesday teatime and, provided that this is possible, Friends’ Night will happen as normal on Thursday evening. However, uncertainty remains, so please watch your inbox, our Facebook page or the website news section from Wednesday teatime onwards for another update.
Just to be clear:
No morning meditation on Sunday 3rd January
No teatime drop-in meditation or study on Monday 4th January
No newcomers’ class on Tuesday 5th January
No lunchtime meditation on Wednesday 6th January
There MAY be a Friends’ Night on Thursday 7th January, and a Younger Sangha Night on Friday 8th January but please await a further update for confirmation.
Please bear with us (and samsara!) while we get the centre back to normal.
In the meantime wishing everyone a very happy, peaceful and fruitful New Year
