LOST PROPERTY AT THE COMMUNITY CENTRE
Since the Community Centre first opened in September we have had a huge number of lost property items left behind which have never been reclaimed. These items have included many really good quality sweaters, hoodies and t shirts, water bottles, cycle helmets, sun glasses, plus much more. We have realised that we need a protocol to deal with all this property.
From now on ordinary items, such as those detailed above, will be kept for 14 days only, but can be reclaimed from the Community Centre reception on any day during that time.
Valuable items such as watches, jewellery, expensive racquets and bats etc will be kept for 28 days, but will require identification such as a driving license or passport in order to reclaim them.
Every week, between 1.00pm and 5.00 pm on a Wednesday afternoon, unclaimed items which have gone beyond the above time limits will be displayed near the reception desk at the Community Centre and can be purchased for a nominal sum. After this all items which are unclaimed or unsold will be given to charity.
We are very much hoping that by advertising these facts, more people who use the Centre and who lose property will make a point of checking to see if it has been handed in to us. We would love to reunite many more lost items with their owners!
