We opened on the 4th July and have been excited to have visitors back at Othona. There has been a very positive response to all the changes we have had to implement to keep everyone safe during these difficult times. We are constantly updating our procedures here based on the latest government guidelines so please check to see what the latest updates are in the documents below. We are only open for pre-booked guests whether overnight or day visitors at the moment, so contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you. We can only accept groups of up to six in size but, as with all hospitality venues we can have multiple groups of six staying at any one time. To minimise our outgoings during these difficult financial times some of the staff will remain on furlough and our wonderful European volunteers will be helping to run the Centre. This means that the usual programmed activities over the summer will not be as planned, however we are hoping to run some virtual sessions during some of the weeks and will update you on those as we know more. We aim to keep the 'Work, Worship, Study and Play' ethos, but now, more than ever, it will require the enthusiasm and commitment of the whole Community. Unfortunately due to these financial constraints we will not routinely be able to offer our usual bursaries and concessionary places at present but please contact the Warden (email@example.com) if you do require financial help. It may be that you are able to help us out during these difficult times by paying our Benefactor rate rather than the Basic rate, this is available as an option on our booking form. This higher rate will help support the running of the Bradwell Centre, so if you are in a position to consider paying this additional 25% towards your stay it would be much appreciated.
Like everywhere else we have had to make changes here to comply with government guidelines and will adapt this as the situation changes. We have tried to keep the changes here to a minimum but we want, of course, to ensure that everyone on site remains safe and well. We wanted to let you know what changes we have put into place here before your visit. We would like your stay here to be enjoyable and to keep the experience here as close to the usual 'Othona' as possible.The key information can be found in the documents below and there is also a video showing what a trip to Othona is like. Please call us (01621 776564) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or concerns.
