CHALK Farm Hotel in Willingdon will stay open during lockdown.

Staff say it is ‘great news.’

It supports people with learning disabilities.

They say: “We have had confirmation that we are able to keep our doors open to our students during Lockdown 2! This is such great news for us.

“All of our students have worked so hard with learning new routines and ways of working these past few months.

“Going into another lockdown would have been really tough for all of us.

“Staying open means we will be there to provide vital face to face training and support to all students!

“To be able to continue this, we are going to need your support! To donate to our lockdown 2 fund please click here –—lockdown-ii
