A statement from Eccleston Parish Council, following the latest advice from Public Health England:
The Smithy Heritage Centre will remain closed for the foreseeable future as a precautionary measure to minimise the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
These are unprecedented times, and the health and safety of visitors, staff and the whole community is of paramount importance to us. We will continue to monitor the situation, and will follow all official recommendations.
We and the Curators look forward to welcoming you back to the Smithy when it is safe to re-open.
Cllr Teresa Sims
Eccleston Parish Council Chairman
