Welcome to our Spring Newsletter.
With the clocks going forward in a few weeks’ time, and the first seasonal flowers emerging, spring always sparks a sense of optimism. But this year in particular, it does feel like we are emerging into a brighter, more hopeful period, with the gradual re-opening of the country and continued roll-out of the Covid vaccination programme.
During the previous two months our team have called and spoken to almost 4,000 self builders and home improvers and we have been delighted to hear about so many projects that have continued to progress. Almost two-thirds of people were continuing their builds, with a further 19% having recently completed their projects. We have also seen over 2,100 attendees join us in various online workshops and courses since the turn of the year. Over the next few months we have a huge range of events open to you, both online, and most excitingly, live at the centre.
We are planning to re-open our doors on Monday 12th April* and invite you to join us on that day. We will then be open, Tuesday to Sunday, as normal – and with all the Covid-secure measures we had in place last year, to ensure you enjoy a safe and relaxed visit. If you’d like to meet some of our exhibitors in person, look out for our special ‘Ask An Expert’ open day on Saturday 1st May – we’ll have more information on who will be attending soon.
Online, or at the NSBRC, we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
*Re-opening subject to the latest ‘road-map’ advice. Visits must be booked in advance via nsbrc.co.uk. Please check our website for updates before travelling.
The UK'S only permanent venue for independent Advice & Support.
Open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 5.30pm
Sunday 10am – 4:30pm
