The Trustees of DHC are sorry to say that due to a change in the Government guidelines for Blackburn with Darwen as a result of the increase in infections from the Indian variant we will be closed to visitors this week.  That is Wednesday 26th May, Friday 28th May and Saturday 29th May. We will monitor the situation and hope that we can reopen as soon as possible.

Please watch this space for updates, thank you.
