Derbyshire County Council has opened a community coronavirus testing centre in Shirebrook for people living in Shirebrook, Whaley Thorns, Langwith, Scarcliffe and Pleasley. This testing centre aims to pick up those people who have coronavirus, but have no symptoms, so that they then don’t pass it on to other people.

Everyone living locally is being asked to go to the test centre once a week for a coronavirus test. Please do not go if you have coronavirus symptoms. If you do have coronavirus symptoms please book a test in the usual way by going to

The centre is at Shirebrook Village Hall, Park Road, Shirebrook, NG20 8JP, and opening times are 9am – 7pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 4pm Saturday & Sunday.
