KSDE Centre Opening and
February 2022 Programme

Thank you for your patience during our extended winter break. Guided by science and common sense it seemed wiser to let the Omicron variant subside somewhat before opening our doors again. During that time KSDE has undergone urgent roof repairs, both to the main building and the courtyard annexe, which is such a great resource for the Centre, especially with Spring on the way. A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped with much needed donations!

Now we’re ready to open up with the building cared for and our health and safety measures in place. We simply request you to comply with them when attending. This includes being fully vaccinated or testing negative for Covid, wearing a face mask and booking events you wish to attend by email. Bearing in mind that places are limited, please only book when sure you can come.

We do hope you will find the upcoming events of interest and benefit and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Centre very soon!
