Community Art Centre Update | A’ The Airts

We are Back!

In line with current government restriction, we are very pleased to say that our café and craft shop are open, but at a limited capacity.  Please call 01659 50514 to book a table, café hours are 10am-4pm Tuesday – Friday.  Facilities are open on the ground floor only, however the disabled toilet on the first floor can still be accessed via the lift.

As a community art centre we are slowly starting back with kids classes, workshops and theatre groups and have an exhibition in place from local artist Pauline Slater.  Please sign in at reception to access the gallery, social distancing measures will be in place to ensure safe flow of visitors.

We are also open in the Craft shop from 10am until 4pm, please don’t forget your mask, and we have sanitiser, screens and gloves in place if you visit. Please do not hesitate to contact us, on 01659 50514 or email contact@atheairts.org.uk and the Admin Team will be only too happy to help with phone orders of shop stock and café bookings. You can also contact us via our Facebook page and order from Sanquhar Pattern Designs online via their online shop.

We can assure you we are working behind the scenes to make sure our Centre is running safely and we’re more than aware that the community may desire our full facilities to be open, however, we must think about safety and how we do this without risking peoples’ welfare.  We are following the Scottish Government guidance in terms of health and safety so that the Centre is a safe space to visit and we have enhanced cleaning in place, personal protective equipment, and are using physical distancing measures to ensure your safety when visiting us and the safety of our staff and volunteers.

Please keep following us on social media or look in the windows for updates for more online activities and Centre updates.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Regards Yvonne Barber (Centre Manager)
