Temporary Closure of Square Works
20th May 2020
At Square Works, the well-being of our members and staff is our number one priority. So we temporarily closed our members club, restaurant and workspace from 25th March.
This was a very difficult decision to make, but having consulted our members and staff we are sure it was the right thing to do.
In order to help our members through this difficult time we have waived rental payments for the whole period where we are closed. We recognise that these are very troubling times for many of our members and we wanted to do what we could to help in these exceptional circumstances.
A huge thank you also to the many members for their messages of encouragement and support in what for us are also very difficult times.
Be assured we will reopen our doors as soon as we think it safe to do so. This won't last forever! We looked forward to renewing our community strengthened by the support we have built together.
Take care, keep well and our very best wishes to all.
