Covid-19 Information

Lochranza Centre CIC has been closed to guests since the 13th of March.  Currently the Centre is functioning as a local hub for the Community.  We are delivering hot meals, collecting medication & shopping for people in the 3 Northend villages of Lochranza Catacol & Pirnmill.  Although this is extremely rewarding it is not what the Centre does on a regular basis.

We are beginning to plan and look forward to when and how we can re-open and welcome guests back to our fantastic Centre & location, subject to Government guidance.  The staff miss working with young people on a regular basis & the Centre requires this to happen moving forward to allow the business to continue into the future.

The safety of our guests and staff will be at the forefront of our thinking and listening closely to what the Governments of the UK as a whole and Scotland are saying, we are considering appropriate social distancing measures, operating procedures & risk assessments for our Centre. However, we realise we cannot do this without the support of visiting students, party leaders, school management, parents, local authorities, transport providers & our local population.

We would be really grateful for any feedback you may wish to provide.  If you have any questions, rest assured we are still here to deal with them if you Email or give us a ring on 01770 830 637.

The government & public health representatives have made it clear that the best place for young people is outdoors.  The risk of Covid-19 spread in the outdoor environment is significantly reduced.  At Lochranza Centre CIC that is what we do best – work safely outdoors with young people.

We can only open the Centre & indeed keep the business in operation for years to come with your support & cooperation.  We think we can operate safely following Government guidelines, when travel restrictions are lifted.  Although we have to make changes, we can still provide a fantastic experience and the level of quality in all areas you have come to expect from us over the years.
