Didcot Town Council and Didcot Civil Hall have pledged to work in partnership with the NHS to support them through the pandemic.

The Civic Hall is making the venue available to any sector of the emergency services.

At the end of May and in June the Civic Hall will open its doors to the NHS Blood and Transplant services.

However, for health and safety reasons the hall will be closed when it is open to the NHS to avoid any cross contamination and to give full support to the NHS staff.

Andre Silva, general manager of Didcot Civic Hall says: "We are delighted to be helping support the national efforts to beat this virus. We have made the building available for the NHS and emergency services to use in any way they think fit."
