Greetings from the Jubilee Centre

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well.

Life is returning to normal at the Jubilee Centre with 18 activities now up and running. It was great to see our members and tutors back at the centre even though it was a bit odd to be wishing them a Happy New Year! Better late than never!

In all ten boroughs of Greater Manchester, the Coronavirus rates are now below the national average, according to the latest data. The really good news is that The Manchester Evening News reports that Coronavirus hospitalisations have dropped by over 75 percent in Greater Manchester over the last week.

With Covid 19 restrictions, the government has declared that England has now returned to Plan A. You should continue to protect yourself and others in the following ways:
