MIN’s Bad Weather Policy

It’s that time of year again when adverse weather conditions can affect our service delivery and we would like to remind everyone of MIN’s Bad Weather Policy with this statement from MIN’s Board of Trustees –

Bad Weather Policy Statement
When snow or ice makes walking very difficult, groups, projects and activities will not be open. If schools are closed due to the bad weather it will be the same for MIN.

Some of our service users and volunteers have to travel a distance, public transport can be difficult to access in times of bad weather and most of our activities are in the Maryhill Community Centre, which can sometimes be closed in these conditions, therefore if you phone the office to check and there is no answer please assume that all activities have been cancelled, particularly those that run in the evening.

The health and safety of all involved in MIN’s work is a priority to us and we do not wish to have anyone travelling in hazardous conditions so please stay safe and warm!
