It may come as no surprise but with great disappointment we have to advise you that the Stourbridge Navigation Trust premises, including the Bonded Warehouse, are now formally closed due to the Coronavirus COVID-19.
We have clearly needed to adhere to government instructions and the closure for an undetermined period of time was always in the offing as the virus spread with many of our hirers needing to cancel their bookings, again correctly following government and expert medical guidance.
The Trust Manager, Heide, will be arranging her attendance in the office as required but will mainly undertake her vital duties by working from home. If you do wish or need to contact her, the best mechanism is by email in the first instance (Stourbridgefirstname.lastname@example.org) and if necessary a time to speak on the telephone can be arranged.
We are very sorry to have to close this vibrant community hub as it pays an important role for many of our valued customers as well as providing the income stream the Trust, as a Registered Charity, requires to maintain and operate the unique buildings. We do hope that this pandemic will pass in the coming months and we are grateful for your anticipated understanding of the position we and many similar organisations find themselves in.
We will be back !
In the meantime, keep safe and we thank you for your support.
