"Following government guidelines and our detailed risk assessments, we've been busy working on measures to ensure we keep everyone safe when working with us and coming into contact with our services," said a Coin Street spokeswoman.

Measures include new signage on social distancing throughout the neighbourhood centre and across the Coin Street estate, new hygiene measures, limits on the number of visitors to the centre, separate entry and exit points, screens in reception, new room layouts, catering arrangements and many other details to keep everyone safe.
