Opening our doors again

WE ARE looking forward to welcoming back visitors to the Guild Chapel following our recent closure due to the pandemic. It hasn’t been the same without you!

We will initially be open on the following dates only:

20th, 27th & 28th October between 11am and 2pm.

For the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers and in line with government guidance, we have put the following measures in place:

  • The Guild Chapel will be open to 6 visitors only at any one time. Visits are available every Tuesday between 11am and 2pm.
  • Please do not visit us if you or anyone in your household/social bubble are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, have been asked to self-isolate or are awaiting test results.
  • Visitors will be allocated a 15 minute time slot on arrival. Pre-booking is not possible.
  • Visitors will only be admitted if they are wearing a face mask/suitable face covering (unless exempt).
  • We will provide hand sanitiser dispensers for visitors.
  • Visitors will be asked not to touch surfaces and if possible, not to sit during their time in The Guild Chapel.
  • You must provide your contact details for the NHS Track and Trace scheme – more details about this are below. (QR code for Track and Trace will be in Chapel)
  • A volunteer led talk will take place at the beginning of your visit, after which you will have a few minutes to (enjoy explore the chapel), ensuring social distance is maintained from anyone not in your household or social bubble.
  • A one-way system will be in operation and you will be asked to leave the way you came in.

How will my personal data be used for the NHS Test and Trace scheme?

Your contact information will only be used where necessary to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Your contact details will be stored securely and disposed of after 21 days.

If you or member of staff become diagnosed with Covid-19 following your visit to The Guild Chapel, the NHS Test & Trace service may request your contact details. We will pass this information to the Test & Trace team, but only in response to a direct request and once we have verified that we have been approached by an NHS staff member.

Following current government guidelines, if you test positive for coronavirus, the NHS Test and Trace service will send you a text or email alert or call you with instructions of how to share details of people with whom you have had close, recent contact and places you have visited.

NHS Test and Trace will then get in touch with us and notify us if there is anything further we need to do.
