Heritage venue Trinity House – also the working home of the General Lighthouse Authority – is now accepting bookings for conferences, small business meetings and corporate events in line with new Government guidelines in either of the two larger functions rooms.
Further to the recent requirements, Trinity House has an NHS QR Code which should be scanned and activated by all event attendees and visiting suppliers (via the NHS ‘app’ downloaded to mobile devices) with data stored by the NHS for up to 21 days to assist tracing procedures, should these become necessary.
Trinity House has been issued with Visit Britain’s ‘Good To Go’ Certificate of Assurance – ‘a self-assessment scheme that has been designed by Visit England… to provide a ‘ring of confidence’ for all sectors of the tourism industry, as well as reassurance to visitors that businesses have clear processes in place and are following industry and Government COVID-19 guidance on cleanliness and social distancing’. In addition, the MIA (Meetings Industry Association) has issued the venue with their ‘Secure Accreditation’ Certificate to confirm it has passed their stringent requirements for same.
While Trinity House was closed during the Covid lockdown, stringent cleaning and disinfectant measures were put in place including a new and on-going schedule of commercial ‘fogging’ – the sterilisation and de-contamination of all internal surfaces with a light chemical mist which has been rigorously tested and proven to be non-harmful to humans, animals, plants, electrical equipment, artefacts and antiques, including paintings.
Other measures in place include the installation of an internal one-way pedestrian route; more windows open to encourage the flow of fresh air, and the increased employment – while the venue is occupied and in use – of dedicated staff to clean ‘high touch points’ (door handles, taps, coat rails, basins and benches etc) using the same fogging disinfectant solution. In addition, Trinity House has purchased a ‘temperature gun’ which will be available for use by staff and clients upon request.
As standing receptions are currently prohibited, guests will be advised to maintain a one-metre+ ‘social distance’ and spaced seating will be arranged for all events.
Trinity House aims to increase bookings of ‘hybrid’ events (combining nominal physical attendance with an enhanced digital presence) subsequent to the installation of high speed wi-fi.
