Offa’s Dyke Centre covid-19 rules

For the safety of everyone you are expected to comply with the following house rules:

  • except when you are eating or drinking at a table, or unless you are exempt, wear a face mask or covering
  • sanitise your hands every time you enter or re-enter the building
  • sign the track and trace register or use the NHS covid-19 app
  • maintain a 2 metre social distance

Q – Why can’t we open longer and on more days?

A – We would like to open on more days but there are problems with the toilet block which need to be resolved. We continue to have constructive talks with our landlord, Powys County Council. The ODA and County are working hard to resolve the issues in the interests of ensuring a long term sustainable future for Knighton’s only tourist attraction.

As well as weekend opening we are still available for one-off hire of the Centre.  We are now fully equipped as a small conference venue and the Centre is licensed for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies.

Q – Why can’t we open longer and on more days?

A – We would like to open on more days but there are issues with the toilet block which first need to be resolved. We had begun discussions with Powys County Council, the owner of the block, about its use by Centre customers when there was a sudden collapse of the slate wall boundary with our neighbours in the old primary school next door. The wall is not part of the toilet block but Powys County Council need to inspect the toilet block slate wall to make sure that it is safe. When the outcome of that investigation is known then hopefully the urgent repairs required to the toilet block roof can be looked at.
