A Meon Valley community centre is to become a coronavirus testing hub.
From July 26th, Wickham Community Centre will be a mobile testing centre for local people two days a week and will be run by military personnel.
“People will drive up and be tested without getting out of their vehicles,” a post on the centre’s Facebook page says. “As they are attending the site to be tested for Covid-19, they will have been instructed to self-isolate until their test results come through and so won’t be visiting the village or any other locations.
“The skate park, community garden, school, homes and surgery will all be unaffected by this essential service.
“We hope you agree that this is the sort of service the community centre should be involved in.”
