Centre announces an August reopening

Coffees and lunches are back on the menu – at a safe distance

 
 
 

THE Buccleuch Centre and Castle View Catering are delighted to be reopening their doors on Friday, August 14.

Iona Davidson, Michele Lowe, Margaret Railton and Tracey and Eric Goodfellow look forward to welcoming everyone and want them to know their experience will be as safe as it can be.

To begin with, the centre will open only on Fridays, although this will rise if there is demand. The menu will be restricted but the food will still be delicious.

Social distancing is in place. The centre has a wonderful, light and airy atrium and, to make the most of the space, the main auditorium will be open.

This means tables will be at least two metres apart and allow for plenty of ventilation. The maximum number allowed in each party will be eight.

Customers will be met at the door by hand sanitiser and either Iona or Michele will show them to their table and take the order.

Masks are to be worn while moving around the centre, including visits to the toilets and when leaving. A one-way system is in place.

Payment should be by card, preferably contactless, and the machine will be brought to the table.

To see more about your likely experience, visit The Buccleuch Centre Coffee Shop Facebook page for the virtual tour.

Take-away orders can be placed by phone but please follow the signage while waiting to collect items.

So, to make the most of Friday 14th, book a table now.

Ring the centre on 013873 81196, leave a name, contact details, the number in the party and preferred time.

Staff will call back to confirm the reservation. Contact details will be kept for 14 days to comply with Trace and Protect.

This is the first step to fully reopening the centre’s doors. If there is demand, watch out for notices about the lunch and cinema afternoons and for the Friday Family Cinema night.

The centre is also considering running Saturday morning matinees for children.

Let staff know whether you would be interested in these events. Social distancing would apply between groups.

Gavin Graham, centre chairman, said: “It has been a difficult time for all but, as we move to the new ‘normal’, we hope people will visit and continue to support and enjoy everything the centre has to offer.

“Whether it be lunch or coffee and cake, the centre will always be a grand, safe place for a wee blether and catch-up with friends and family.”
